Greek Cypriot Government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides has welcomed the choice of Mustafa Akinci as leader of the Turkish Cypriots.

He said that that President Anastasiades has just spoken to Akinci on the phone to congratulate him.

Both leaders, he added, “expressed the wish to work for the reunification of our country.”

Christodoulides said that the Republic of [South] Cyprus “welcomes the choice of Mr Akinci as the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community, a man who through his public discourse, his declarations, has referred to the need for the reunification of our country.”

The Government Spokesman expressed the hope that “through a sincere and substantial dialogue with the active involvement of Turkey those conditions which will allow us to be optimistic that the occupation can come to an end and our country can truly be reunified will be created.”

UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide, who also congratulated the new President of the Turkish Cypriot community, will be in Cyprus between May 4 – 8 to continue preparations for the resumption of the Cyprus negotiations.
