President Nikos Christodoulides flew to Rome on Thursday evening where he held meetings with the country’s leadership.

Christodoulides was first received by Italian President Sergio Mattarella, with the two having a courtesy meeting.

The president extended an invitation to Mattarella to visit Cyprus next year – on the occasion of 20 years since the island joined the European Union.

It would also be the first ever visit to Cyprus by an Italian president.

“2024 marks the 20th anniversary since Cyprus’ accession to the EU, the most historic, the most important moment in the history of the Republic of Cyprus,” Christodoulides told the Italian statesman.

Later in the evening Christodoulides held a work meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, at the Palazzo Chigi in Rome.

Before his trip to Italy, the president had completed a two-day official visit to Serbia.
