NICOSIA, Cyprus — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday warned that talks to end Cyprus' 36-year division would suffer a major setback unless progress is reached early next year.

The United Nations chief said in a report released on the island that peace talks "could founder fatally" without a "substantive agreement" being reached before elections in Cyprus and Turkey are held in mid-2011.

"I fear a critical window of opportunity is rapidly closing," Ban said in his report to the UN Security Council. "It is my concern that the political environment in the second quarter of 2011 will likely not be conducive to constructive negotiations."
