President Christodoulides hosts FBI Assistant Executive Director

Meeting highlights strong Cyprus-US relations and collaborative efforts in law enforcement


President Nicos Christodoulides hosted a meeting today with FBI Assistant Executive Director Michael Nordwall at the Presidential Palace. During the meeting, President Christodoulides highlighted the strong ties between Cyprus and the United States, emphasizing their cooperation across various sectors. He also praised the role of the U.S. Ambassador to Cyprus in deepening bilateral relations.

After the meeting, Presidential Press Office Director Victor Papadopoulos stated that the discussion was productive, focusing on the FBI’s work in Cyprus and its assistance in resolving cases to maintain the country's reputation. Papadopoulos mentioned ongoing investigations involving police response to previous incidents, with disciplinary actions expected for specific officers.

Addressing recent comments by Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar on the two-state solution and EU accession, Papadopoulos reiterated that such proposals are unacceptable. He affirmed that Cyprus, as an EU member, seeks a solution based on a bizonal, bicommunal federation. He also clarified remarks by UN official Ms. Olguin, stating her commitment to a sustainable solution and a shared future, contrasting with Tatar's two-state demands.

Papadopoulos concluded by underscoring the close collaboration between the Cypriot and Greek governments, noting regular communication between President Christodoulides and Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis to reignite negotiations from where they left off in Crans-Montana.
