UNITED NATIONS - UN chief Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday he planned to call an international conference in late April or early May on a settlement to resolve the division of Cyprus, if there was enough progress in negotiations before that.

Ban was speaking after two days of talks near New York between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders, which he conceded had made "limited progress" on outstanding issues.

Cyprus was divided in a 1974 Turkish invasion triggered by a Greek-inspired coup. Greek and Turkish Cypriots agree in principle on reuniting the Mediterranean island under a federal umbrella, but differ on how it is to work.
