Final deadlines come and go with depressing frequency in the unresolved issue of how the two parts of Cyprus, North and South, Turkish and Greek, can find a way of living peacefully together. The two elderly leaders, Rauf Denktash and Glafcos Clerides, have failed since they both came to power in the 1980s to agree on a solution to the division of their island which was brought about by the Turkish invasion in 1974. For most of the years since then their intransigence has been supported, for their own reasons, by Ankara and Athens.
