FM briefs EU ambassadors on provocations in EEZ

Nikos Christodoulides

Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides on Tuesday briefed the ambassadors of EU member states accredited to Nicosia on Turkish provocations in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and the backtracking of the Turkish Cypriot side on the appointment of a special UN envoy.

The briefing took place just a few days before the EU foreign ministers council in Luxembourg, where Christodoulides will have the opportunity to brief his EU counterparts on the same issues.

Tuesday’s briefing took place during a lunch hosted by the Slovenian embassy.

According to CNA, Christodoulides stressed to the ambassadors how Turkey’s actions against Cyprus and Greece have a negative impact on the interests of the EU itself as well as its plans for the Eastern Mediterranean.

Christodoulides also briefed the ambassadors on Cyprus’ strategy for economic diplomacy, that was approved by the council of ministers on October 8, and the role which the foreign ministry and Cyprus’ diplomatic missions can play in promoting the priorities of the Republic laid out in the strategic framework for fiscal policy.
