President Nicos Anastasiades met Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Friday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.

In a written statement, the president said he had a “very interesting” meeting with Lavrov, during which he briefed him on the latest developments on the Cyprus problem.

“I had the opportunity to offer my warm gratitude for Russia’s enduring stance within the Security Council after Turkey’s recent violations of Varosha’s status quo, and express our views and determination to continue the dialogue towards finding a solution based on UN resolutions,” he said.

Lavrov reiterated Russia’s position, which “remains in favour of finding a solution that is fully in line with UN resolutions and Security Council resolutions”.
