Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos yesterday submitted a proposal to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with the aim of reviving stalled peace talks.

The proposal foresees a meeting between President Papadopoulos and Turkish-Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat within the next two weeks followed by talks between “working groups” from both sides of the island.

The aim of the talks is to draft a pact based on the agreement reached by community leaders in July 2006, which Turkish Cypriots now dispute. The proposal was dismissed as “verbiage” by Talat who also submitted a proposal to Ban foreseeing the creation of confidence-building measures.
