The President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades was discharged from Mount Sinai hospital in New York on Sunday, at 1130 local time, after a heart surgery he underwent in early December.
He will stay in a Manhattan hotel for some more days before he travels back to Cyprus.
In statements to the press, cardiac surgeon David Adams, who performed the operation on December 2, said that the health problems which Anastasiades faced have been fully addressed and that the President is ready to return back to his duties. He said however that his doctors recommended him to rest for one week and spend some time with his family.
In his statements, President Anastasiades thanked everyone and especially his doctors and Mount Sinai hospital for their support.
Last Wednesday the President met at the hospital with US Vice President Joe Biden, who wished him well. On Tuesday, Anastasiades will have a meeting at his hotel with Victoria Nuland, the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, and on Wednesday he will receive UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
