Greek and Cypriot leaders congratulate Turkey’s President Erdogan on re-election


Cyprus President, Nikos Christodoulides, extended his congratulations to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his re-election on Monday, according to a report by Ekathimerini.

Erdogan extended his rule into a third decade by defeating Kemal Kilicdaroglu in the country’s runoff election on Sunday.

In a press conference event organised by the Cyprus Ministry of Energy and hydrocarbon companies, Christodoulides emphasised Cyprus’ preparedness to resume discussions with Turkey on the Cyprus issue.

“With the completion of the electoral process, our efforts enter a second stage, as it represents a significant milestone, and we remain hopeful for forthcoming developments,” Christodoulides stated.

This comes as Greece’s President Katerina Sakellaropoulou similarly sent a congratulatory message to Erdogan on Monday.

Erdogan will also receive a letter from Greece’s caretaker Prime Minister, Ioannis Sarmas, sending his congratulations and expressing his wishes for peace for the Turkish people.
