Expert links Cypriot FM’s visit to Armenia with Cyprus EU presidency

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian political analyst explained the meetings of Cyprus’ Foreign Minister with “neighbors” of Europe by the country’s intention to assume EU presidency in near future.

According to Hrant Melik-Shahnazaryan, Armenia became one of the countries FM Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis visited due to its active cooperation with European institutions. The expert further linked the official’s visit with EU-Armenia partnership rather than discussion of problems with Turkey.

Cyprus’ Minister of Foreign Affairs Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis will pay an official visit to Armenia April 3-4, on the invitation of Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian.

Meetings with President Serzh Sargsyan, Prime Minister Tigran Sargysan, Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II are on Cypriot official’s visit agenda, as well as a joint news conference with Mr Nalbandian.

Cypriot Minister will also be taken on a tour over Tsiternakaberd Memorial to commemorate Armenian Genocide victims.
