Kerry visits divided Cyprus to boost peace talks

US Secretary of State John Kerry (C) shakes the hands of Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades (R) and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci (L) ahead of a dinner in Nicosia on December 3, 2015US Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that an end to the four-decade division of Cyprus was “within reach” as he visited both sides of the Mediterranean island to support peace talks. Hopes have grown for a peace deal since leaders in the Greek Cypriot south and Turkish Cypriot-held north resumed UN-brokered negotiations in May, with meetings in recent weeks intensifying to their highest level in years. Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied its northern third in response to an Athens-inspired coup seeking union with Greece.
