He added that the visit comes at a timely juncture ahead of the upcoming Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU.
Demetriou told CNA that during his contacts, the Cypriot Foreign Minister will discuss issues related to the forthcoming Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU and its priorities, international and regional issues as well as the Cyprus issue and the Confidence Building Measures.
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.
