President Anastasiades to pay historical visit to Georgia, Spokesman says

President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades will be paying an official visit to Georgia from April 16 to 18, a visit described by Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou to be of historical importance, as it will be the first of a Cypriot President to the country.

Prodromou said that on the agenda of talks were bilateral relations, noting that Cyprus was interested in strengthening Georgia’s ties with the European Union.

He also said there were many sectors of cooperation which the two countries could improve, such as investments and trade.

Prodromou noted that Cyprus and Georgia also shared the same religion and historical background, with a notable Greek presence since antiquity.

Soon after his visit to Georgia, President Anastasiades will be travelling to China.
