UN envoy Eden Barth Eide held separate talks with rival Cypriot leaders Monday to try to revive peace negotiations after "very high hopes" of a breakthrough were dashed last week.It has always been agreed that some of the territory currently controlled by the Turkish Cypriots will be ceded to Greek Cypriot control in any peace deal.The two leaders were close on the percentage of territory to remain under Turkish Cypriot administration in a future federation.But they remain far apart on how many Greek Cypriots should be able to return to homes they fled in 1974, with Akinci determined to minimize the number of Turkish Cypriots who would be displaced for a second time.Greek Cypriots want these issues resolved first, while the Turkish Cypriots want all outstanding disagreements to be tabled at a summit on security that would involve Britain, Greece and Turkey.
