Famagusta Mayor receives reassurances that the town’s plight will be included in a report on Turkey

The Mayor of the Turkish occupied town of Famagusta Alexis Galanos has received reassurances by Kati Piri, (S&D Netherlands MEP), Turkey`s pre-accession rapporteur for the European Parliament, that a call for the return of the town will be part of her annual report, due out later this year.

Galanos met Piri during a three day visit to Brussels where he exchanged views with EU Commissioner Christos Stylianides, the President of the EP petitions committee, GUE chair Gabi Zimmer, the Cypriot MEPs and EPP “shadow rapporteur” on Turkey`s EU accession Renate Sommers. Galanos told the press in Brussels that “shadow rapporteur” Sommers agrees with the inclusion of the Famagusta case in the EP report.
