Cyprus President Recovering in ICU

NICOSIA — Surgery in the United States to repair Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades’ heart valves was successful and his condition is stable, an official said Wednesday.

Cyprus government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said 68-year-old Anastasiades will remain in intensive care at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York for several days.

Tuesday’s operation to repair the heart valves and Anastasiades’ occasional heart arrhythmia was completed “without any complications,” according to Christodoulides.

Anastasiades’ cardiologist and his physician were present during the surgery.

The president has been the leader of Cyprus since March 2013.


Property seized during Turkey's invasion of the northern third of Cyprus in 1974 are reportedly being sold mostly to Israelis, much of it agricultural land in the Karpas peninsula.
