"[The Security Council] calls upon the two leaders to: a) Put their efforts behind further work on reaching convergences on the core issues," the resolution states.
The resolution also calls upon the parties to "improve the public atmosphere" for further negotiations, including by focusing public messages on uniting the population in their search of a common way ahead.
Moreover, the resolution urged the parties to implement confidence-building measures and continue to engage with the UN Mission in Cyprus to work out solutions to current issues.
Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when the Turkish troops entered the island. The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus was declared in 1983 and is recognized only by Turkey while the international community considers is as a part of the Republic of Cyprus.
On July 7, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said that a new round of the talks on the Cyprus dispute that took place in the Swiss town of Crans-Montana had ended with a failure of the parties to reach an agreement.
