President Anastasiades and PM Tsipras to discuss Cyprus issue ahead of new round of talks

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades will brief Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday on the negotiations that took place in Switzerland between Cyprus and the Turkish-Cypriot side, ahead of a new round of talks that will start on Nov. 20.

The meeting is scheduled at 18:00, Cypriot government spokesman Nikos Christodoulides said, adding that if the discussed international conference on the issue is held, the only topics in the agenda will be security and the issue of guarantees.

“[The conference] is not the place to set on the table any requests Turkey has towards the Greek government,” Christodoulides said in statements to radio station “Super Sport”.

During his visit, Anastasiades will also meet President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and the leaders of the opposition parties.
