European Parliament head Metsola kicks off Cyprus official visit

European Parliament President Roberta Metsola on Friday morning arrived at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia for talks with President Nicos Anastasiades.

She will later meet House of Representatives head, Annita Demetriou, and address the House plenary.

Metsola who arrived in Cyprus for an official visit late on Thursday is to discuss – among other issues – the latest gas find in the island’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

She has already said in an interview that the latest gas discovery in block 6 of the island’s EEZ was a promising development at a time when the EU needs to replace Russia as an energy source.

Metsola will also have a meeting with the mayor in exile of Famagusta and municipal councillors in Dherynia at 4pm.

And at 6pm, together with Demetriou, she will attend an event organised by youth groups and students of the University of Cyprus in Nicosia.
