Cypriot foreign minister due in Athens on Monday

Cypriot Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides will visit Athens on Monday for discussions on the latest impasse in reunification talks on the island.

He is due to meet Greek Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos at 11 a.m. Both men are scheduled to address journalists after their talks.

The meeting has been called in the wake of Nicosia suspending peace talks after Turkey issued a maritime directive covering an area of Cyprus’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

On Thursday Athens rebuffed calls from Ankara for it to urge Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades to return to the negotiating table.
