Turkish, Greek Cypriot leaders continue to discuss power-sharing .hurriyet2008-detailbox-newslink { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:13px; font-weight:bold; text-decoration:none; color:#000000;} .hurriyet2008-detailbox-newslink:hover { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:13px; font-weight:bold; text-decoration:underline; color:#990000;} Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat and his Greek Cypriot counterpart Demetris Christofias are holding Tuesday their 11th meeting in the buffer zone in Nicosia under the full-fledged talks aiming at finding a permanent solution to the Cyprus issue. (UPDATED)

The leaders are discussing "federal public administration" and "public commission and foreign relations" issues under the "power-sharing" title, the Anatolian Agency reported.
In the previous meeting, the leaders assessed "federal crimes" and "federal police" and agreed on almost all issues concerning federal crimes.
The delegations and U.N. Secretary General's Special Envoy for Cyprus Taye-Brook Zerihoun will later attend the meeting of the leaders, the agency added.

Cyprus has been divided since 1964 when Turkish Cypriots were forced to withdraw into enclaves. The leaders of the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities began talks in September after a four-year hiatus.
The launch of negotiations marked the first major push for peace since the failure of a U.N. reunification plan in 2004, which was approved by Turkish Cypriots but overwhelmingly rejected by the Greek Cypriots.
Despite ten face-to-face meetings, the two sides have made little tangible progress.
Power sharing disputes remain at the heart of the Cyprus problem. The Greek Cypriots are seeking a reunification under a strong federal government but the Turkish Cypriots prefer more a devolved union.
