A joint FIFA-UEFA delegation, led by FIFA and UEFA vice-president and chairman of the FIFA Associations Committee Geoff Thompson, met today at the Home of FIFA in Zurich with representatives of the Cyprus Turkish Football Association (CTFA), headed by president Omer Adal.

The meeting is part of a process started by FIFA and UEFA in September 2007 with a view of improving the relations within the football communities in the island of Cyprus. Meetings which also included representatives of the Cyprus FA were held in September and October of 2007, and talks have continued since then.

During the meeting today, a proposal was presented by FIFA and UEFA to the CTFA delegation, which will be further discussed in the upcoming weeks.
