Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' official visit to Cyprus on July 29 and the latest developments on the island state were discussed in a phone call with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades on Monday.
According to Cypriot government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou, the two sides exchanged views, discussed their policy plans and are "fully aligned" in their targets.
In a phone conversation with US National Security Adviser John Bolton on Friday, Cyprus Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides called for Washington's support as Nicosia seeks to safeguard its sovereign rights in its exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in light of ongoing Turkish violations off its western coast.
Cyprus' new police chief has apologized to the families of seven foreign women and girls who an army captain has confessed to killing.
Kypros Michailides said at a ceremony Tuesday to mark his appointment that he offered the apology because police had failed to protect the victims.
He said those who failed will be held accountable.
