In particular, the two Foreign Ministers will have a private meeting at 12:00, followed by extended talks.
Subsequently, Dendias and Kasoulides will make joint statements to the press at 13:15. A working lunch will follow.
According to the Greek Foreign Ministry, the discussions between the two Ministers are part of the ongoing cooperation and coordination between the two countries.
The two Foreign Ministers are expected to focus on developments in the Cyprus problem and the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean in the light of the latest developments.
In addition, they are expected to discuss issues related to multilateral cooperation schemes, the European Union, as well as the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results. The last round of negotiations, in July 2017 at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana ended inconclusively.
