KKE leader Koutsoumbas discusses national issues with Cyprus’ AKEL leader Kyprianou

The developments in national issues in Greece and in Cyprus dominated Communist Party of Greece (KKE) secretary general Dimitris Koutsoumbas and Cyprus’ party AKEL secretary general Andros Kyprianou meeting on Monday.

Both officials expressed their concern over the escalating, as they said, Turkish aggravation and the Erdogan government’s effort to escalate tension in the Aegean and Cyprus’ EEZ and in the wider region of eastern Mediterranean, underlining the need to remain vigilant.

They also pointed out the need for closer cooperation between the two countries.
