Greek and Cyprus presidents call for calm in Egypt

Greek President Karolos Papoulias and his Cyprus counterpart Demetris Christofias on Thursday expressed hope that calm will prevail in Egypt and Cairo’s stand over issues of national interest to Athens and Nicosia will not change.

During talks in Athens, the two leaders expressed anxiety for the current situation in the Mediterranean country and the possible repercussions in the wider region.

“Egypt has been a leading country in the area and a firm supporter of Greece and Cyprus. We hope this policy will not change,” said Christofias.

“Our coordination is necessary,” noted Papoulias, sending a similar message for stability in Egypt and the region.
