 Josep Borrell To Discuss Turkish Illegal Activities With Government Officials

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, Josep Borrell, will hold on Thursday and Friday meetings in Nicosia with Cyprus government officials to discuss, among other issues, the Turkish provocations in Cyprus` Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), the CNA reported.


Borrell will be received this evening, at 19:00 local time, by Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades. Before that he will visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at 17:30 where he will hold a meeting with Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides, which will be followed by extended discussions with officials from delegations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the European External Action Service.


A press release issued by the Foreign Ministry said that the discussions are expected to focus on Turkey’s ongoing illegal activities in the maritime zones of the Republic of Cyprus and the wider context of the EU’s relations with Turkey in that context.


The latest developments in the wider region of Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East will also be discussed at the meeting as well as other issues related to the formation and implementation of the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy, including the Permanent Structure Cooperation (PESCO).


Foreign Minister Christodoulides and the High Representative will make statements to the media at 1830 local time.


Borrell will meet on Friday with Defense Minister, Savvas Angelides, with whom he is expected to discuss, among other issues, Cyprus’ participation in PESCO, that aims to deepen defense cooperation between the EU member states, and the role of Cyprus in EU operations taking place in the framework of the Union’s strategy on defense and security issues.
