Relations between Cyprus and Poland confirmed during Syllouris and Szynkowski vel S?k meeting

President of the House of Representatives Demetris Syllouris and Secretary of State for Polish Community Abroad, European Policy and Public Diplomacy – Szymon Szynkowski vel Sek, reconfirmed the very good relations and cooperation between Poland and Cyprus at parliamentary, economic, EU and cultural levels.

A House press release said Syllouris received vel Sek, who is currently visiting the island, accompanied by officials from his ministry.

Referring to the Cyprus problem, Syllouris said it is an issue of illegal invasion by Turkey and occupation of more than one third of the Republic of Cyprus’ territory and this is how the international community should look at the Cyprus problem.

Szynkowski vel Sek underlined that Poland supports efforts to solve the Cyprus problem and reunite the country based on international law and UN decisions.

He also said that Poland favours a peace force in Cyprus for as long as necessary and until a solution is achieved.

The two men discussed the reforms currently underway in Poland. They also exchanged views on further promoting the economic and commercial relations between the two, with special emphasis on new technologies and start ups.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results. The latest round of negotiations, in July 2017 at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana ended inconclusively.
