New President of Cyprus pays first official visit to Greece


Greece’s Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, welcomed Nikos Christodoulides to Athens on Monday for his first official visit as newly-elected president of Cyprus.

According to Ekathimerini, Mitsotakis expressed to Christodoulides that Greece would continue to work with Cyprus to find resolutions for the Cyprus issue.

“Talks on the Cyprus issue must restart, with possibly greater European involvement,” Mitsotakis said.

“Crucial issues that concern Greece and Cyprus” will be the focus of the upcoming European Council to be held March 23-2, Mitsotakis added.

Sakellaropoulou: Cyprus issue remains a concern

Greece’s President, Katerina Sakellaropoulou, also welcomed Christodoulides to the Presidential Mansion in Athens on Monday.

“The Cyprus issue is a constant concern and a top national priority of Greek foreign policy,” Sakellaropoulou said during their meeting.

“The common goal of our countries, as always, is that of reaching an agreed solution based on the decisions of the United Nations Security Council.”

In response, Christodoulides said: “We will do everything humanly possible to break through the deadlock, to achieve the goal of liberating and reuniting Cyprus on the basis of the agreed framework. And it is within this context that we believe that the European Union can play a decisive role.”
