Anastasiades: We are Working Closely with Greece on EEZ, Cyprus Issue and Turkey

February 10, 2018

NICOSIA – “We are working closely with Greece on the EEZ issue, the Cyprus issue and our relations with Turkey, and we will determine the next steps taking into account the short-term as well as the long-term consequences for both countries,” Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency published on Friday.

“I remain determined to continue the dialogue, at least as far as domestic issues are concerned. But with regard to a Cyprus Conference, there has to be good preparation,” he added.

He underlined that Cyprus stands at Greece’s side in all its struggles and all their efforts on all fronts, national, political, economic and others. In this context, he noted, Cyprus will also support Greece after the end of the memoranda.

Referring to the FYROM name issue, he said: “It is not only a political issue, it is a national issue that touches the hearts of the Greeks.” At the same time, he noted that it was a matter “that needs to be handled by Greece itself.”

The full interview is available in Greek on the ANA’s website.


NICOSIA - Relative to its population, Cyprus shipped out more migrants – some 3,500 – than any other European Union country in the first half of 2022 although the island isn't a favored destination.
