NICOSIA — Cyprus’ rival leaders are meeting at a United Nations compound to restart talks aimed at ending the small island nation’s four decades of division. Negotiations got under way again Friday after an eight-month hiatus.

In a familiar scene from previous rounds, Greek Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and the leader of the breakaway Turkish Cypriots, Mustafa Akinci, arrived at the capital’s derelict airport in search of a breakthrough to one of Europe’s most stubborn conflicts.

Cyprus split in 1974 when Turkey invaded after a coup by supporters of union with Greece.

The victory of Akinci, a moderate, over a hard-line incumbent has offered a glimmer of hope for a peace deal among ordinary Cypriots jaded by decades of failure.
