Efforts to reunify the ethnically divided Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus will recommence next week after rival Greek and Turkish Cypriots agreed to a new round of talks.In a brief statement Friday, the breakaway Turkish Cypriots said renewed talks became possible after both sides agreed on text of a joint declaration outlining the main principles that will guide a future accord. The most recent round of talks, which aimed at forging a federation between the Turkish Cypriot north and the internationally recognized Greek Cypriot south, ground to a halt in the middle of 2012 .The main point of contention had been on the sovereignty status of a reunified Cyprus amid concerns among Greek Cypriots that Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu was seeking recognition for his community as a separate state that would act as a buffer against domination by the majority Greek Cypriots.
