Cyprus intends to open an embassy in Astana, Kazakhstan, next year to enhance bilateral cooperation, according to a report citing the Kazakh foreign ministry’s press service.

More specifically, Kazinform News Agency has reported that the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan, Murat Nurtleu, had a meeting with Cypriot Foreign Minister Constantinos Kombos, during which the parties discussed a number of important issues pertaining to Kazakh-Cyprus relations. And Kombos revealed that in order to boost bilateral cooperation, Cyprus’ government intended to open an embassy in Astana next year.

The two exchanged views on topical issues on the international agenda, and confirmed their interest in further strengthening of political dialogue, trade-economic and investment interaction between Astana and Nicosia.

Referring to new promising areas of cooperation, the ministers noted the unrealised potential for cooperation in the fields of transport, logistics and tourism. As a result, they agreed to consider the possibility of establishing direct flights between the two countries as a priority step.
