Migration in focus: Leaders of Greece and Cyprus meet with EU Commission President


Cyprus President Nikos Christodoulides engaged in discussions on migration with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen during a luncheon with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in Athens, Greece. 

The meeting followed Christodoulides’ address at the ruling New Democracy Party’s conference.

After delivering his speech, Christodoulides held a private meeting with Prime Minister Mitsotakis at Maximos Mansion before joining von der Leyen and Mitsotakis for lunch.

Government spokesman Konstantinos Letymbiotis highlighted that “the main topic of discussion revolved around managing the recent surge in migration flows from Lebanon, and exploring specific strategies to address this issue with greater EU involvement.”

Christodoulides is scheduled to travel to Lebanon on Monday accompanied by the ministers of interior and foreign affairs, the Chief of the National Guard, and other officials. They will meet with Lebanon’s leadership to address the migration challenge and explore potential solutions.
