The relations between Nicosia and Beijing are entering a new phase, said Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides.
In his remarks to reporters, in Shanghai, where he is accompanying the President of the Republic on his visit there, Christodoulides said that “considering the discussions of the President of the Republic, but also the meetings of the Ministers that accompanied him with officials of the Chinese Government and the Communist Party, we can argue that the relations of Nicosia with Beijing are entering a new phase”.
There is, he noted, obvious political will by both sides to strengthen and upgrade those relations further.
