Holbrooke ends 'make-or-break' Cyprus mission

The United States special envoy, Richard Holbrooke has ended two days of talks in Cyprus with no sign of progress in efforts to reunite the divided island.

After twice meeting the Turkish Cypriot leader, Rauf Denktash, Mr Holbrooke said the Turkish Cypriot position was unchanged.

He also reported no progress in his discussions with President Glafcos Clerides, representing the Greek Cypriots.

Mr Denktash doesn't want to resume talks on reunification until Turkish northern Cyprus, which split from the Greek-dominated southern part of the island in 1974, is recognised internationally.

Mr Holbrooke says he will continue his efforts next month.
