  • Description

    Greek and Turkish Cypriots began informal discussions in Vienna on Monday (28 April) aimed at finding a solution to the Cyprus problem.

    The talks, scheduled to last about a week, began late as the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Dr. Kurt Waldheim, and the Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders, Mr. Glafkos Clerides and Mr. Rauf Denktash prepared opening statements.

    The United Nations called the talks because of lack of progress in attempts to settle the dispute on the island.

    Talks between the two community leaders broke down in February after Turkish Cypriots proclaimed an autonomous state in the northern half of the island.

    Forty thousand Turkish troops are still stationed there after last summer's invasion.

    The first working session of the present talks lasted about fifty minutes.
