President Anastasiades to meet British PM

President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades will meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on Tuesday to discuss the resumption of the Cyprus talks and Brexit.

The meeting, that will be held late afternoon, will also examine issues of mutual interest.

The same emphasis will be given during Cyprus Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides’ meeting this morning with his British counterpart, Jeremy Hunt.

Christodoulides is in London accompanying the President on his official visit to the British capital.

The Cypriot side is expected to ask the British government to support efforts for a resumption of the Cyprus talks on a correct basis.

The repercussions from a possible Brexit without an EU agreement will also be examined. Both sides have stated their wish to fully secure the rights of European citizens in the UK and British citizens in the EU, irrespective of how the Brexit will develop.

President Anastasiades will also be received by the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge, at Clarence House.
