President Expresses his Willingness to Meet with Akinci

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades expressed his willingness to meet with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.

His comments came as UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide returned to the island in a bid to revive the UN-led talks on the Cyprus problem, suspended after Akinci walked away from the talks, citing an amendment passed by the Cypriot parliament.

The amendment includes a once a year discussion in school classrooms about the 1950 referendum held in Cyprus, which favoured back then a union or ‘enosis’ with Greece.
