Citing that negotiators of theGreek and Turkish Cypriots had a preparatory meeting on Oct. 9, leaders of Greek Cyprus and Turkish Cyprus will have a meeting on Nov. 4 to discuss the solution process regarding the island, Davutoğlu said at a press conference on Oct. 9, with his Turkish Cypriot counterpart Özdil Nami.
