The leader of Turks in Cyprus said he hoped talks on possible reunification of the divided island will start in September. In a live interview on CNN-Turk television, Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat said: "I think these negotiations will start in September." Cyprus President Dimitris Christofias and Talat will meet on July 25 to assess progress in preparatory negotiations and to decide when to restart direct peace talks. The last such talks were held four years ago. The Mediterranean island was split in 1974, when Turkey invaded after an Athens-backed coup aimed at union with Greece. The breakaway Turkish Cypriot north is only recognized by Turkey.
