    Background: UNITED NATIONS

    Cypriot President, Spyros Kyprianou and Turkish-Cypriot leader. Rauf Denktash have held an initial round of separate talks with the Security-General of the United Nations, Javier Perez de Cuellar, aimed at healing the twenty-year rift between the island's two communities. They are due to meet for a second round of 'proximity talks' on September 11, with the UN acting as go-between. Perez de Cuellar put forward last month a series of 'working points' for both sides to use as the basis for negotiations aimed at rebuilding confidence between Greek and Turkish ethnic communities and establishing a federal system of government on the island. Neither side has commented on the progress of the talks, but President Kyprianou says the current phase of the Cyprus problem was particularly critical and delicate. Mr. Denktash says Mr.Perez de Cuellar has done a good job and he and his delegates are ready to discuss the points put forward, The two leaders seem unlikely to meet together, however. The President Kyprianou says he will only meet with Mr. Denktash if the Turkish Cypriots annul their declaration last November of independent statehood with Denktash as their president. The talks are expected to continue for at least a week.
