European Parliament President Antonio Tajani has said he will visit Cyprus by the end of the year at the invitation of President of the House of Representatives Dimitris Syllouris.
Syllouris concluded his three-day working visit to Brussels on Wednesday.
Following a meeting with Syllouris at his office at the European Parliament, Tajani said in a press conference thereafter that they had discussed the Cyprus issue, and expressed his personal disappointment that the talks in Crans Montana had been unsuccessful.
“As we say in the European Parliament in the resolution in July, we are right now on equivocal solidarity with Cyprus to end the Turkish military occupation of northern Cyprus and reach an agreement in line with EU values and principles,” he said.
“We support the institutions of Cyprus and the negotiations effort made by President Anastasiades and by his government,” he added. “We will be in Cyprus to defend this position.”
