The National Council will meet on Friday when President Nicos Anastasiades will brief party leaders and members about his meeting on Tuesday with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci and other developments on the Cyprus issue.

On her Twitter feed, deputy government spokesperson Klelia Vassiliou wrote that the president would inform the National Council on Friday at 9am.

Meanwhile, the UN Secretary-General’s spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric referred on Tuesday to the confidence-building measures announced by the two leaders after the informal meeting they had, in Nicosia.

Addressing the regular press briefing of international media at the UN Dujarric said: “The two leaders decided to implement the confidence-building measure regarding mobile phone interoperability in order to facilitate greater interaction between the two communities.”

In addition, he said, “the leaders announced that the interconnectivity of the island’s two electricity grids, as agreed in 2015, has now been achieved.”

Anastasiades and Akinci, Dujarric added, “also agreed on the clearance of nine suspected hazardous areas on both sides of the island, with a view to working towards a mine-free Cyprus, as well as a number of other confidence-building measures.”
