Cyprus President calls for stricter EU measures for Turkish violations

President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades made on Saturday particular reference to Turkey’s recent illegal activities and the need to adopt stricter measures on the part of the EU, in order for Ankara to terminate the violations against the Republic of Cyprus’ sovereign rights.

The President was addressing the Summit of the Friends of Cohesion at the city of Beja, in Portugal, where 17 member states convened to discuss the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021-2027.

In a written statement, Deputy Government Spokesman Panayiotis Sentonas notes that the Summit, which was attended by 11 heads of EU state or government, is deemed as particularly importance ahead of the European Council on February 20 in Brussels, that will seek consensus on the MFF.
