Cyprus remains a top priority for Greece, president says


Greece will continue to support Cyprus in its efforts to find a solution to the Cyprus problem and counter any attempt made by Turkey to create faits accomplis, as we have recently seen in the case of Varosha, Greek president Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Tuesday.

She was speaking after meeting Cyprus House President Annita Demetriou at the Presidential Palace in Athens, and said that the situation in Cyprus constitutes a top national priority.

Demetriou is on an official visit to Greece to deepen ties between the two nations and has held meetings with senior officials, where the Cyprus problem featured as a main topic.

Sakellaropoulou told Demetriou that inter-parliamentary cooperation is a particularly strong link to deepen relations, which can help enhance coordination and mutual understanding on key issues.

Earlier in the day Demetriou met Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias.

She also visited the National Art Gallery in Athens, which is dedicated to Greek and European art from the fourteenth to the twentieth century. The newly refurbished building reopened on March 24, 2021 just a day before the two hundredth anniversary of the Greek war of independence.
