ZURICH - Talks in Switzerland on reuniting the divided island of Cyprus have failed to strike a deal, the United Nations said on Tuesday.

In the latest round of talks, Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Aknc had been negotiating for two days."Despite their best efforts, they have not been able to achieve the necessary further convergences on criteria for territorial adjustment that would have paved the way for the last phase of the talks. The two sides have decided to return to Cyprus and reflect on the way forward," the United Nations said in a statement.
