Press & Mass Media Minister and Greek government spokesman Dimitris Reppas arrived in Cyprus last night for a one-day visit, heading a delegation of a "Coordinating Committee to Promote National Issues."
Upon arrival, Mr. Reppas said nothing has changed regarding the issue of the S-300 missiles' deployment on the island republic. He added that there is an on-going debate that is necessary "to re-adapt our tactics", as he said.
Reiterating that Athens' position is identical to Nicosia's decisions, he said the Cyprus issue should not be limited to the missiles issue.
The committee comprises officials and high-ranking members of the mass media ministry, the press and information office and representatives of the foreign ministries of Greece and Cyprus.
Delegations from both sides will hold talks today to coordinate cooperation in the field of informing public opinion on national issues.
The talks will be chaired by Mr. Reppas and Cyprus government spokesman Christos Stylianides.
Mr. Reppas will be received by Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides this morning. He will also meet the President of the House of Representatives, Spyros Kyprianou.
