Kyriakos Kouros has today taken up the position of Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, verifying a report by Marina Economidou last week in Kathimerini.
The news was confirmed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a post on Twitter, which stated that Kouros received the baton from Kornelios Korneliou in the presence of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Constantinos Kombos, and the staff of the Ministry.
Kouros, who hails from the Greek Cypriot Intelligence Service, brings with him a wealth of experience in the field of intelligence gathering and international diplomacy.
The appointment of Kouros to this important position is seen as a strategic move by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to strengthen Cyprus' international relations and ensure the country's national security interests are protected. With his extensive background in intelligence and diplomacy, Kouros is expected to play a key role in shaping Cyprus' foreign policy in the years ahead.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs congratulated Kouros on his appointment, thanking Kornelios Korneliou for his service as the outgoing Director General. "We wish Mr. Kouros every success in his new role and look forward to working with him to further strengthen Cyprus' position on the world stage," the Ministry said in its tweet.
