Germany: Maas discusses migration, Syria with Cypriot counterpart

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas held a meeting with his Cypriot counterpart Nikos Christodoulides in Berlin on Monday. In addition to discussions on bilateral relations between Cyprus and Germany, the politicians discussed the latest developments over the Cyprus dispute with Turkey, Brexit, immigration, and Syrian conflict. Commenting on Syria, Maas said: «At the moment all is about to... Еще prevent a humanitarian catastrophe in Idlib.» He added that in his opinion during the Tehran's trilateral summit between Iran, Turkey and Russia, Ankara didn't manage «to take stance against military action which would increase the humanitarian disaster.» «That's why we are concerned about the further development in Idlib,» he said. Speaking about immigration, Nikos Christodoulides told the reporters that during the talks with Maas he had «conveyed the government's deep concern as Cyprus is facing the largest amount of asylum seekers in proportion to the population.» Christodoulides arrived in Berlin for a two-day working visit. On Tuesday, he is expected to deliver a speech on «Geopolitics in the Eastern Mediterranean» at the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. Wednesday morning Christodoulides is set to head to Athens for talks with his Greek counterpart Nikos Kotzias.
