Estonia ready to be facilitator for Cyprus problem

Estonia is ready assume the role of facilitator, both with regard to the Cyprus problem as well as EU-Turkey relations, in the framework of the country’s six-monthly EU Presidency of the Council of the EU, as of July this year, said Taavi Rõivas, House Vice President and former Prime Minister of Estonia.

He added that the EU needed to provide more support to the Republic of Cyprus, one of its member states, in all areas.

According to an announcement from the House of Representatives, Rõivas was part of a parliamentary delegation that on Tuesday visited House Speaker Demetris Syllouris. Members of the Estonia-Cyprus parliamentary Friendship Group are on a three-day visit to Cyprus.

During the meeting, the two sides also discussed the future of the EU and Brexit and exchanged views on bilateral cooperation in investments and e-government.

The parliamentary group’s president Kalle Palling and members Toomas Kivimägi, Oudekki Loone and Meelis Mälberg form the rest of the delegation.
