Ruling Cyprus left wing AKEL party Central Committee Secretary General Andros Kyprianou met on Wednesday with Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) party leader George Karatzaferis. The meeting, according to statements by the two men, focused on developments on the issue of Cyprus, Turkey and the Middle East.

Karatzaferis said that there is no question that the issue of Cyprus is in an extreme turning point and "there must be, at least, a wider agreed opinion on the further handlings."

Kyprianou also met with Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) president Alexis Tsipras, who expressed SYRIZA's unwavering support for the efforts of Cyprus President Demetris Christofias for a just and viable solution to the issue of Cyprus.
