Turkish Cypriot leader says Cyprus division could be solved by end of year

Turkish Cypriot leader says Cyprus division could be solved by end of year

The leader of the breakaway Turkish Cypriots said Monday that he believed the division of Cyprus could be resolved by the end of the year.
"I believe that it won't be a surprise if we solve the problem by the end of 2008," said Mehmet Ali Talat, a day after Dimitris Christofias won Cyprus' presidential election on a pledge to restart stalled talks to reunify the island. It has been split into a Turkish Cypriot north and a Greek Cypriot south since 1974.
