UK offers to de-escalate tensions with Turkey in call with Anastasiades

 

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson expressed support to Cyprus positions on Eastern Mediterranean tensions, Downing Street said in a statement following a phone conversation yesterday with President Anastasiades over regional and bilateral issues.

Johnson offered UK assistance to de-escalate the situation and reduce tensions.

President Anastasiades briefed Johnson on the latest Cyprus issue developments, with the British PM encouraging a resumption of settlement talks.

According to the Downing Street statement, the two leaders reaffirmed the long standing ties between the two countries and discussed common concerns both on Eastern Mediterranean tensions, as well as the Libyan crisis.

They agreed to continue deepening their bilateral relations and work together to deal with global challenges caused by the on-going pandemic.
