Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus, Ioannis Kasoulides, who is paying an official visit to the country. The Prime Minister congratulated Mr Kasoulides on assuming his duties as the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus, for the third time, following two previous terms that have been long-lasting and admittedly successful.
During the meeting, Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Ioannis Kassoulides exchanged their views on European and international matters of common interest, as well as regional developments, focusing on Turkey’s aggressive rhetoric.
They also discussed trilateral and multilateral cooperations, with an emphasis on the cooperation with Egypt and Israel, as well as the “3+1” scheme between Greece, Cyprus, Israel and the United States.
The Prime Minister reiterated that the common objective of Greece and Cyprus remains finding a comprehensive, accepted and functional solution to the Cyprus issue, based on a bizonal, bicommunal federation, in accordance with the United Nations Security Council resolutions.
Kyriakos Mitsotakis reassured Mr Ioannis Kasoulides that Greece will continue to support Cyprus’ efforts to revoke all illegal Turkish actions and to cancel the Turkish effort to impose new “faits accomplis” especially in Varosha.
