Pope Francis’ visit to Cyprus constitutes a historic event, an official press release has said on Wednesday.
The visit will take place from 2 to 4 December. This is the second time that a Primate of the Roman Catholic Church will be visiting Cyprus.
According to an official press release issued by the PIO, the President of the Republic, Nicos Anastasiades, is expected to brief Pope Francis on the latest developments in the Cyprus issue, Turkey’s recent provocations both on land and at sea and the ongoing efforts to resolve the Cyprus problem.
“The efforts made and the initiatives taken by the UN are hindered by Turkish provocations. The Republic of Cyprus seeks to find a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem, a solution that will respect the UN Security Council Resolutions and will be in line with the European acquis”, it is noted.
