Greek PM-UN Advisor Focus on Bicommunal Talks in Cyprus


Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Advisor on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide met in Athens on Tuesday for an hour and a half. Their talks focused on Cyprus talks between Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiadis and Turkish-Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.

Tsipras told Eide that he supports a just, viable and complete solution for Cyprus that would involve the removal of Turkish troops from the island. He said that a solution should be based on the UN resolution and bear in mind Cyprus’ status as an EU member state.

During the one and a half hour meeting, the two men discussed bicommunal talks ahead of a press release that Anastasiades and Akinci will present on Wednesday. According to the CNA, drafts of the document have been discussed already.
