  • [01] FM - INDIA - VISIT

    Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou will pay a visit to India between 16 -19 April, during which he will review bilateral relations and ways to further develop cooperation between Cyprus and India.

    The Foreign Minister will be received by the Vice President of India and President of the Upper House of Parliament, Hamid Ansari and will also have a meeting with his Indian counterpart Shri S.M. Krishna.

    Kyprianou will brief Mr Ansari and Mr Krishna on the current phase of the direct negotiations on the Cyprus problem, which aim at reuniting the country, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    EU - India relations as well as other international and regional issues of mutual concern will also be discussed, including the latest developments in the Middle East and Northern Africa.


    A Ministerial meeting will take place next week in Cyprus with the participation of EU Ministers from the six Mediterranean states, which are faced with disproportionate mass immigration flows. EU Ministers from Cyprus, Greece, Malta, France, Spain and Italy, responsible for immigration issues, will gather in Nicosia on April 19th, at the invitation of the Minister of the Interior Neoclis Sylikiotis.

    The Nicosia meeting will focus on the situation in North Africa and the Middle East and immigration flows which exert disproportionate pressure on the six EU Mediterranean countries.

    According to an official press release, the meeting will discuss the need for a comprehensive management of immigration flows in the EU framework, based on the principle of solidarity among EU member states. During the meeting, the Ministers will put forward common proposals in a Joint Communique, which will then be submitted to the next EU Council of Justice and Interior Ministers.
