Macron affirms support on Cyprus problem

France offers diplomatic and military backing to Christodoulides in tackling Cyprus issue and strengthening bilateral ties


The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, expressed his support to the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Nikos Christodoulides, regarding the national problem.

The two presidents had a meeting in Paris, where they discussed various issues such as the situation in Ukraine, and the upcoming European Political Community Summit. President Macron expressed his appreciation for the commitment of President Christodoulides to resolving the Cyprus issue and assured him of France's support, both diplomatically and militarily, as always in the past when there were threats of escalation in the Eastern Mediterranean in military contexts. 

They also discussed strengthening bilateral cooperation, particularly in areas such as energy, defense, and security, breaking the deadlock in the Cyprus issue, the developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and the wider Middle East, and the issue of immigration.

Christodoulides is currently in France on official business and will travel to London on Thursday to attend the coronation of King Charles.
