Anastasiades and Tatar expected to meet for first time since April


The President of the Republic of Cyprus, Nikos Anastasiades, and Turkish ‘leader’ of the pseudo-state, Ersin Tatar, will meet next month at a social event to be held by the United Nations in Cyprus on the occasion of the end of 2022.

This meeting may absorb the tension between Cyprus and the pseudo-state, which has been growing in recent months.

Anastasiades has called on European and international allies to condemn efforts by the Turkish Cypriot north to become a recognised entity, with the Greek Cypriot leader also asking Berlin during a visit this week to help jumpstart negotiations for a federal solution.

Tatar, who accuses the Greek Cypriot south of not being sincere in seeking a federal solution, has been cranking up rhetoric in support of equal sovereignty, an alternative basis for a settlement to the Cyprus Problem favoured by Ankara.

The meeting in December will be hosted by United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus.

The last meeting between the two leaders took place last April. It was a UNFICYP event which took place at the Old Nicosia Airport with the participation of the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Nikos Anastasiades, Ersin Tatar, and the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Cyprus, Colin Stewart.
