House ratifies agreement to establish WHO office in Cyprus

The House Plenum has ratified the agreement between the Government of Cyprus and the World Health Organization (WHO) to establish a WHO Office in Cyprus.

The agreement was signed by both parties in Nicosia on 27 January 2023, following a Cabinet decision a day earlier. At the plenary, 44 MPs voted in favour, while one abstained.
