Greek Prime Minister and Cypriot President discuss Turkish provocations


The President of the Republic of Cyprus Nikos Anastasiadis had a telephone conversation with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Tuesday.

According to Cyprus Government Spokesman Kyriakos Kousios, Mitsotakis informed Anastasiadis about the situation prevailing in the eastern Mediterranean, as well as the various conversations he has had with European leaders.

During their talks, they discussed and coordinated further measures to be taken to counter Turkey’s attempts to expand its influence in the region.

The two leaders agreed to be in constant contact.

It is recalled the EU earlier said it stands in “full solidarity” with Greece and Cyprus.

“The EU stands with full solidarity on the side of Greece and Cyprus and there is no doubt about that,” said Peter Stano, the EU’s foreign affairs spokesperson.

At the same time, Stano described the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean as “extremely worrying” and noted that “it should be resolved through dialogue and not through a series of steps that increase escalation and tensions.”
