Cypriot Ambassador briefs German President on developments in negotiations on the Cyprus problem

Cyprus Ambassador Andreas Hadjichrysanthou briefed the President of the Federal Republic of Germany Frank Walter Steinmeier on the latest developments in negotiations for a settlement of the Cyprus problem.

Hadjichrysanthou presented his credentials on April 24, to President Steinmeier, during a ceremony that took place at “Schloss Bellevue” in Berlin. A press release issued by the PIO said that “during a private meeting held after the ceremony, Harjichrysanthou conveyed to the Federal President of Germany President Anastasiades regards and his wishes for progress and prosperity for the people of Germany.”

The Ambassador expressed Nicosias satisfaction over the excellent Cypriot-German relations and assured that the Cyprus government and himself will continue to work to further enhance and broaden them.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory. President Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci have been engaged in UN-led talks since May 2015, with a view to reunite the island under a federal roof.
