Foreign Minister continues meetings in Washington

Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Christodoulides continues his contacts in Washington with a meeting on Wednesday evening at the White House with National Security Advisor John Bolton, to discuss bilateral relations, trilateral cooperation, regional issues, the Cyprus problem, and the presence of the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).

Earlier on Wednesday, Christodoulides visited the American Hellenic Institute and met with its President, Nick Larigakis, and also met with the leadership of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Diplomatic sources said it has been agreed that President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades be the keynote speaker at the AIPAC Congress in Washington, in March.

Christodoulides will also attend a reception hosted in his honour by Cyprus’ Ambassador in Washington Marios Lyshiotis, and will then depart for New York where he will meet on Thursday morning with US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley. He will then return to Washington to attend a dinner hosted by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
