Jamaica supports the peaceful settlement of the Cyprus problem through bi-communal talks under the auspices of the United Nations, says new High Commissioner to Cyprus, based in London, Her Excellency Aloun Ndombet Assamba.

Presenting her credentials to President Nicos Anastasiades, during a ceremony on Thursday (February 12), at the Presidential Palace, Mrs. Ndombet Assamba said the Government of Jamaica supports the independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and unity of the Republic of Cyprus.

She referred to the excellent bilateral relations between Jamaica and Cyprus, noting that the two countries, though vastly different in their historical evolution, share striking similarities.

Receiving the credentials, President Anastasiades reiterated his “sincere willingness and determination to work tirelessly to achieve a settlement reuniting Cyprus.”

The President referred to the bilateral relations of substance and trusting dialogue between the two countries, noting that they provide a solid foundation on which to further promote cooperation in new areas, such as tourism, trade and education.

The High Commissioner also met with the Honorary Consul, the Foreign Affairs Minister of Cyprus, and head of Caribbean Affairs in the Mediterranean island.

The Cyprus problem refers to the ongoing conflict between the population of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, as well as between their respective states – the internationally recognised Greek Cypriot-controlled Republic of Cyprus, and the Turkish Cypriot-controlled Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which is recognised only by Turkey.
