Christodoulides and Von der Leyen strategize on Cyprus migration crisis

Cyprus urges concrete measures to stem migration flow


In a cordial atmosphere, the meeting between President Nikos Christodoulides of the Republic of Cyprus and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen took place today, Sunday, April 7, in Athens.

Mr. Christodoulides and Ms. von der Leyen convened in Athens on the occasion of the 15th Conference of New Democracy.

According to information from the Cyprus News Agency, the meeting between the President of the Republic of Cyprus and the President of the European Commission focused on ways in which the EU can specifically support Cyprus in preventing migration flows to its territory.

Additionally, they discussed the messages President Christodoulides is expected to convey to Lebanon tomorrow on behalf of the EU.

It is noted that this issue is expected to be discussed at the upcoming Informal European Council.

Earlier, the President had a private meeting with the Greek Prime Minister to discuss the latest developments in Cyprus and the continuation of Greece-Cyprus cooperation and coordination in light of upcoming discussions.

Kyriakos Mitsotakis reiterated Greece's steadfast support for the Cypriot initiative "Amalthea" for the humanitarian corridor to Gaza.

The two leaders also discussed the new migration flows in Cyprus, which are causing great concern for a new migration route due to the ongoing instability and violence in the Middle East.
