Greece crisis: New PM in crunch Cyprus talks as Turkey’s row with EU rumbles on

NEWLY-ELECTED Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis arrived in Cyprus today for crucial negotiations as he hopes to quell Athens’ ongoing diplomatic battle with Turkey.


Mr Mitsotakis will enter strategic talks with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades, with the Turkish row and energy cooperation likely to top the agenda. The newly elected leader of Greece will hope to send a firm message to Ankara at the start of his premiership by striking up good relations with the disputed territory. The talks come after the Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias told Israeli President Reuven Rivlin that Turkey must be sent a clear message over its regional behaviour.
