Christodoulides Meets US Assistant Secretary Of State

Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides met US Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs Clarke Cooper to discuss the current Eastern Mediterranean situation.

 

The decision to set up the meeting was taken last week when Christodoulides had a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, during which he was updated about the Cyprus problem and the illegal opening of the fenced off town of Varosha. The two officials also discussed the next steps to enhance the cooperation between Cyprus and the US.

 

The two parties exchanged views, among others, on the issue of partial lifting of the US embargo on the sale of non-lethal weapons in Cyprus, the US military training program IMET, in which Cyprus was invited to participate, and the Cyprus Center for Land, Offshore and Port Security (CYCLOPS) to be established following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Cyprus and the US during US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Cyprus last month.

 

Cooper is also scheduled to meet Defence Minister Charalambos Petrides and the two of them will visit the Joint Rescue and Coordination Centre (JRCC) in Larnaca. Cooper arrived in Europe on October 14 and travelled to Greece, Bulgaria, Poland and Cyprus as part as a US effort to expand security cooperation and defence trade, the US State Department announced last week.
