Talks in Switzerland on reuniting the divided island of Cyprus have failed to strike a deal, the United Nations said on Tuesday.
The Turkish foreign ministry spokesman said the talks failed to achieve a result despite “all the well intentioned efforts” of the Turkish Cypriot side and that a valuable opportunity had been missed.
He said it would be beneficial to continue talks and said a date should be set without delay for a five-way conference attended by the guarantor states.
