House President and Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade discuss Brexit

The UKs exit from the European Union and its impact on Cyprus and Britain was at the heart of a meeting between House President Demetris Syllouris and Irish Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Simon Coveney, who is on a working visit here.

According to a press release, issued by the House, the Irish FM briefed Syllouris on the latest developments in Brexit negotiations and outlined Irelands positions on the issue.

Syllouris pointed out the need for closer cooperation between the two countries, especially in the post-Brexit era, as Cyprus and Ireland are two of the most affected states from Brexit.

They also discussed ways to further strengthen parliamentary relations between the two countries through the exchange of visits, expected to take place within the next few months.

Coveney, who leaves later today, was accompanied by Ambassador of Ireland to Cyprus, Deirdre Ni FhallUin and other officials.
