According to Prodromou, President Anastasiades briefed Mitsotakis on consultations with UN special envoy on the Cyprus dispute Jane Holl Lute, and also heard the Greek Premier’s thoughts on potentially ‘restarting negotiations’.

“Cyprus and Greece are fully aligned on mutually set targets,” reads the Cypriot statement, while “during their talks they (Anastasiades-Mitsotakis) agreed to meet in Athens for a thorough discussion about the full planning and coordination of the next steps,” Prodromou said.
