High Commissioner at university

British High Comissioner Brian Kidd speaking at the UCY

Bilateral relations, youth unemployment, the economic crisis in Cyprus and the eurozone, terrorism, the Cyprus problem, and the role of the UK in Cyprus were among the issues discussed by British High Commissioner Matthew Kidd with students at the University of Cyprus yesterday.

Students from the departments of social and political sciences, journalism, European affairs, finance, business and public administration asked the High Commissioner questions on the issues that currently concern them.

Welcoming Kidd was University of Cyprus rector Constantinos Christofides, who said Cyprus and Great Britain have a long standing relationship.

“We want to look to the future, how we see Cyprus in the coming years, and our relationship with Great Britain,” he said.

Asked how such a small country like Cyprus can have an effect on international matters like the UK does, Kidd said it does not depend on the size of a country but the ambitions of its citizens.
