New round of peace talks aimed at reunification of Cyprus, is expected to start in October.

Reinforced preparations for the opening of the next chapter of peace talks aimed at solving the Cyprus problem are undergoing. It is planned that the negotiations will start in October 2013, although the exact date has not been declared yet. UN’s special adviser for the Cyprus problem, Alexander Downer, has officially handed over the proposals to the President of Northern Cyprus Dervis Eroglu on September 11. The proposal has been prepared by administration of South Cyprus and is concerning the matters of closed city Maras. According to Mr. Alexander Downer, the opening of Maras will give both countries of Cyprus tremendous opportunities in further progression of peace talks. Moreover the opening of former tourist center of Cyprus will generate large inestments from abroad that are expected to result in economic boost for both Northern and Southern Cyprus. The property compensation is also planned to take place after the opening of the town.

Previous round of peace talks were suspended in January 2012 due to the upcoming presidential elections in South Cyprus. Maras was completely abandoned and closed in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 550, adopted on May 11, 1984 , which states that any visits to Maras are strictly forbidden.
