Ban told reporters Wednesday that he has asked the sides to exchange information about property on the divided Mediterranean island over the next two weeks.
Ban attended talks between representatives of the two groups on Monday and Tuesday just outside New York, but he emphasizes that the negotiations were led by the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, not the U.N.
