The hope that the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus will be able to "listen to the citizens" was expressed by the Personal Envoy of the UN Secretary-General Maria Angela Holguin Cuellar after the meeting she had on Wednesday at noon, in the occupied territories, with the Turkish Cypriot leader, Ersin Tatar, during which he informed him, as he said, of international support for a lasting solution to the Cyprus problem and of the desire of civil society in this direction.

Speaking after her meeting with Mr Tatar, Ms Holgin said they had "a very constructive discussion".

Mr. Tatar "repeated his position. I told him about my travels to some countries and that the international community supports a lasting solution in Cyprus, which I think is important and now the responsibility lies with the leaders," he pointed out.

He noted that in recent months he has listened to "civil society, the private sector, young people."

"I met with a lot of people and everyone, across the island, wants to move forward," he added.

So, he said, "it is the responsibility of the leaders to do something, and I hope they will be able to listen to the citizens."
