Davutoglu gives a spot to Anastasiades on his Facebook page

The photo uploaded on Ahmet Davutoglu's Facebook page

A photo of Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and President Nicos Anastasiades with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker at Sunday’s EU-Turkey summit in Brussels is spreading across social media after Davutoglu uploaded the pic to his Facebook account.

The move was being seen as unprecedented given that Turkey does not recognise the Republic of Cyprus or Anastasiades as its president.

The photo was uploaded among a series of others from the summit and had by Tuesday garnered almost 900 ‘likes’ on Davutoglu’s Facebook page. The Turkish foreign minister had not written any comment with the photo however.

Anastasiades and Davutoglu were spotted in several photos from the summit smiling and chatting. Anastasiades even broke protocol to stand next to Davutoglu in the traditional ‘family photo’ when normally he should have stood next to the Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.

The government said on Monday the two men had a brief exchange on the sidelines of the summit where they both expressed the desire for a Cyprus solution.

Davutoglu was in the north on Tuesday for a meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.
