President Christodoulides on working visit to The Hague

President Nikos Christodoulides is paying a working visit to The Hague and will be received by King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Premier Mark Rutte, Government Spokesperson Konstantinos Letymbiotis has said.

Speaking to the press following a meeting of the Cabinet, the Spokesperson said that President Christodoulides is visiting the country on 28 February, following an invitation of the Dutch Prime Minister.

At 5.30 pm (Cyprus time), the President will be received by the King of the Netherlands, Willem-Alexander, at the Palace, in The Hague.

They will discuss bilateral relations, issues related to the exchange of experience in the management of water resources, which, the Spokesperson noted, is a subject of particular interest to the King himself.

On the agenda is also the future of Europe, in view of the upcoming European elections, as well as the Cyprus issue.

The President will then meet with the Prime Minister at his official residence. They will discuss the situation in the Middle East, Ukraine, migration issues and bilateral ties.

Letymbiotis said that the President will also inform the Premier about developments in the Cyprus issue and the efforts for the resumption of talks, from where they left off in Crans Montana, on the basis of the agreed framework, in light of the appointment of the personal envoy of the UN Secretary-General.

The Spokesperson noted that relations between Cyprus and the Netherlands are at a very high level and the two countries have a large number of bilateral agreements for cooperation in various fields such as defence and security, tourism and investments.

He reminded the press that the agreement for the avoidance of double taxation has recently entered into force and it is set to further strengthen the cooperation between the two countries in the field of economy and investment.

The President returns to Cyprus on 29 February.
