FM reiterates Cyprus’ principled position on Palestinian issue

Foreign Minister, Ioannis Kasoulides, and Ambassador of Palestine to Cyprus Abdallah Attari, discussed on Friday bilateral relations between Cyprus and Palestine, developments in the Middle East and the Cyprus problem.

According to a post of the Foreign Ministry on Twitter, Kasoulides reiterated Cyprus’ principled position on the Palestinian issue.

It is also noted that during the meeting, that was productive, Kasoulides and Attari confirmed the ties of friendship and solidarity between the peoples of Cyprus and Palestine.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results. The latest round of negotiations, in July 2017 at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana ended inconclusively.
