Statement by the President of the Republic after his meeting with the President of the European Commission

The President of the Republic, Mr Nicos Anastasiades who was in Brussels to participate in the deliberations of yesterday's extraordinary meeting of the European Council, held a meeting yesterday afternoon, with the new President of the European Commission, Mr Jean Claude Juncker. After the meeting, the President made the following statement: "During the meeting with the new President of the European Commission we had the opportunity to discuss the latest developments on the Cyprus problem, the appointment of the new Special Representative and the need for the EU to play an upgraded role in the efforts to solve the Cyprus problem. A second issue was that of the economy and the progress made by our country, but also the consistent implementation of its obligations under the Memorandum so that it can, the soonest possible, get out of commitments or even provisions which have caused and cause painful sacrifices to our people. The third issue was of course the composition of the European Commission and the portfolio for Cyprus, for which, following discussions and since Mr Juncker has the biographies of the two candidates, he will decide himself which of the two to call for an interview so that he is assigned, in my opinion, one of the important portfolios of the European Commission. - 31.8.2014
