Mike Pompeo

US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo is scheduled to visit Cyprus during the first week of January, as he returns from a trip to Asia, Cypriot media have reported.

According to sources, US-Cyprus bilateral relations in light of the passing of the East Med Act (the lifting of the arms embargo and the partnership pact on cooperation in the Eastern Mediterranean), as well as the Cyprus issue will be on the agenda of the visit.

A bilateral agreement is also expected to be signed, an issue that was discussed during Cyprus Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides’ recent visit to Washington.
