EU high representative of foreign policy Josep Borrell will visit Cyprus on March 5 in anticipation of the informal five plus one informal meeting, the president’s office announced on Tuesday after he held a telephone conversation with President Nicos Anastasiades.

The previous day Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides also exchanged views with Borrell over the telephone on the latest developments on the Cyprus problem and EU-Turkey relations.

“We strongly wish to see a sustainable de-escalation in the Eastern Mediterranean, but in the wider region also,” Borrell said last month after meeting Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

Borrell also said that the EU was fully committed to supporting a speedy resumption of the Cyprus talks.

“Such efforts have to be maintained. Intentions and announcements need to be translated into actions,” he said.
