Anastasiades and Akinci agree to consult with each other on next steps to the Cyprus problem

Cyprus President and Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci agreed on Saturday to hold consultations on the next steps to the Cyprus problem, Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou has said.

According to a written statement issued by Prodromou, the agreement was reached over a telephone conversation when Akinci called Anastasiades to wish him speedy recovery, after the accident President Anastasiades had earlier today in Limassol that resulted in fractured right thigh.

The President of the Republic Mr Nicos Anastasiades received a telephone call by Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci, who contacted him to learn about his health and to wish him speedy recovery. During their conversation President Anastasiades and Mr Akinci agreed that following the President’s recovery they will hold consultations on the next steps to the Cyprus problem, Prodromou said.

The last round of UN-brokered talks for a settlement to the Cyprus problem broke down in July 2017 in the Crans Montana, Switzerland.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied 37 per cent of its territory.
