NICOSIA mayor Constantinos Yiorkadjis and his newly elected Turkish Cypriot counterpart in the north Mehmet Harmanci met for the first time on Friday, in an attempt to compile a list of priorities the two municipalities can work together to resolve.
Speaking to the press, Yiorkadjis said that the two sides face a number of problems and that he met with Harmanci, who was elected on June 29, in an attempt to tackle these issues together.
“This is our first meeting. We thought it was best we get to know each other,” Yiorkadjis remarked.
The Nicosia mayor said that both officials will set down their priorities and look into ways of solving problems that affect the daily lives of people on both sides.
Harmanci, on his part, also pointed out the fact that this is the first meeting between the two and expressed his willingness to work with Yiorkadjis to improve the quality of life and public services withing both communities.
“This meeting is a good start for a future possible collaboration,” said Harmanci, whose election was widely unexpected and ran as the dark horse in the municipal race last month.
Both mayors are relatively young. Harmanci is 37 years old, while Yiorkadjis is 46.
