"We will need even more courage and determination in the period ahead to bring these talks to a successful conclusion," Ban told a news conference at a U.N. compound in Nicosia, the island's capital.

Flanked by Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, Ban said, "I'm encouraged that the two leaders personally assured me of their shared commitment for a comprehensive solution as early as possible but I am convinced that these two leaders can achieve a mutually beneficial solution».

Four Greek Cypriot political parties said they would not attend a reception given by Ban on Monday evening. Ban, who took no questions during a brief news conference, said he was convinced the leaders could achieve a solution. "No one is under the illusion any of this is easy. Peace negotiations never are. But the time is ripe to push ahead," he said.

«I wanted to be here now because I recognize how important it is to continue to build momentum on what the leaders have achieved now,» Greek Cypriot President Dimitris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat have achieved only marginal progress in 17 months of negotiations. The secretary general praised the two leaders for making progress this month on a proposal to share power in a federal system.

The United Nations acts as a facilitator in talks, and last week announced "significant progress" on some aspects of how the two sides could govern the island together in a future two-zone federation.
