Anastasiades to meet Juncker

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker

President Nicos Anastasiades is scheduled to meet the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker on Thursday on the sidelines of an EU summit in Latvia.

The two men are expected to discuss the Cyprus problem and the EU’s involvement in the negotiations, which resumed last week, reports said.

Reunification talks between the two communities resumed last Friday following a seven month hiatus.

Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci pledged to work tirelessly to resolve the matter as soon as possible.

The leaders’ next meeting is scheduled for next Thursday. They will also meet socially on Saturday but details have not been made public yet.

The two leaders agreed to meet “at least” twice a month while their negotiators, Ozdil Nami and Andreas Mavroyiannis, will meet “intensively” in between.

The negotiators met on Wednesday to take stock on what had been discussed before the interruption in October 2014, and to work on a joint list of confidence building measures.

It is understood that the objective is to come up with a list that will be announced by the leaders after their meeting on Thursday.

The negotiators are also scheduled to meet on Friday.
