Diplomatic missions to deliberate

THE deliberations of the annual meeting of the heads of diplomatic missions in Cyprus will begin on Wednesday and will last until Friday.
During the meeting, there will be a review on issues of foreign policy and regional security, on the bilateral relations between Cyprus and third countries and the participation of Cyprus in international organisations.
The agenda will start with the meeting of the minister of foreign affairs with the heads of diplomatic missions accredited to the countries of North Africa, Middle East and the Gulf, in order to discuss specific issues and the geopolitical developments in the Eastern Mediterranean.
From Thursday to Friday, the heads of diplomatic missions will be informed by President Nicos Anastasiades and Greek Cypriot negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis on the negotiations process and by the ministers of energy, commerce, industry and tourism and the minister of finance on issues of their competence with particular emphasis on energy, the attraction of foreign investment and the implementation of the adjustment program.
On Friday, the heads of diplomatic missions will be briefed by the foreign minister on foreign policy issues, with emphasis on what has been accomplished in the last year under the new orientation of the foreign policy of Cyprus as well as the role of Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean region.
The heads of diplomatic missions will also discuss the reform of the ministry of foreign affairs in the framework of the wider reform efforts of the civil service.
