Greek Foreign Minister Nicos Dendias will be visiting Cyprus on Thursday as Turkey raises regional tesnio with provocative actions such as violating the Exclusive Economic Zones of both Cyprus and Greece.
Dendias is scheduled to meet President Nicos Anastasiades, his Cypriot counterpart Ioannis Kasoulides and Archbishop Chrysostomos.
An official announcement said the Dendias-Anastasiades meeting takes place within the framework of close cooperation and coordination between Nicosia and Athens.
And that – amongst other – under discussion will come the next steps to be taken between Cyprus and Greece in their bid to confront the Turkish provocations.
Dendias will also address the Conference of Heads of Diplomatic Missions of Cyprus taking place in Nicosia.
Dendias will also hold separate talks with the island’s three main candidates for the February 2023 presidential elections. That is, ruling Disy’s leader Averof Neophytou, Opposition Akel’s Andreas Mavroyianns and centre Diko’s Nikos Christodoulides.
Over the recent past months, the tension in the eastern Mediterranean region has reached new heights triggered by age-old Turkish expansionist provocations and violations of sea space of both Cyprus and Greece.
