The Cyprus problem and diaspora issues were discussed during a meeting that Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades had on Wednesday with the Deputy Minister for Expatriate Greeks Antonis Diamataris. The Greek official is in Cyprus for the Conference of the Overseas Cypriots which began yesterday and wraps up on Friday.
Diamataris told the press after the meeting that he feels honored and deeply thrilled to be in Cyprus representing the Prime Minister of Greece, adding that he has been knowing the President from long ago.
He said that they discussed issues related to the Cyprus problem and the diaspora in the US and elsewhere, adding that it is always a pleasure and an honor to be able to discuss with the President.
Diamataris also said that he is happy for the close and brotherly cooperation with Cyprus Presidential Commissioner Photis Photiou. He noted that he is at the service of the whole Hellenism but has a particular sensitivity for his 'beloved Cyprus`.
Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied its northern third. The latest round of UN-backed talks to reunite the island under a federal roof has ended inconclusively at the Swiss resort of Crans Montana in July 2017.
