    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu will continue their discussions on the property issue in a meeting they will have on Wednesday, 4 August at the United Nations Protected Area of Nicosia. The property issue was also discussed by the advisors of the two leaders, George Iacovou and Kudret Ozersay on Friday 30th of July.

    Speaking after their last meeting on July 28th, Alexander Downer, Special Adviser of the UN Secretary General on Cyprus said that property issue is one of those issues ``where the quality of the meetings inevitably varies from time to time, as you would expect in every single negotiation that ever takes place anywhere in the world``.

    According to Downer, the leaders will also meet on August 10.

    Peace talks began in September 2008 between President Christofias and former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat. Talks continue now with Eroglu, who succeeded Talat in April this year.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory.


    Temperatures on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus have reached 42 C on Monday, giving residents a respite after Sundays record breaking temperatures of 46C.

    According to Meteorological Service officer, Artemis Orphanou, Sundays temperature of 46 degrees Celsius (115 degrees Farenheit) that was recorded in the capital Nicosia, was the hottest day ever since records began.

    She told CNA that Cyprus is in the middle of a heat wave which is a combination of many factors such as hot air masses in the higher and lower atmosphere, lack of winds and increasing humidity levels.

    The levels of humidity remain high with Larnaca reaching nearly 100% this morning.

    In Paphos, temperatures were between 80-85%, Limassol more than 90% and in the free areas of Famagusta 50%. In Nicosia, humidity levels reached 78%. On Monday evening, humidity was expected to be high in eastern areas where thin mist and low cloud will also form, said Orphanou.

    As the heat wave that has hit Cyprus continued, the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance had issued on Monday a warning, ordering employers to ask their staff to stop working for four hours, from noon until 1600, if their job involves exposure to sunlight.
