Cypriot President Anastasiades: it’s too early to discuss the country’s entry into NATO
According to the head of state, the decision on Cyprus’s entry into the alliance would raise objections from Turkey, and would also be hampered by various procedural issues.
“Besides this, we are a small country, we need protection, of course, and the main thing is that the protection is effective, and any decisions are approved by the people,” Anastasiadis commented.
When asked by journalists about the new anti-Russian sanctions, the President replied that if the restrictions imposed EUdo not help, then they will not be accepted.
Earlier in May, Finnish President Sauli Niiniste, during a telephone conversation with Vladimir Putin told about his country’s intention to join NATO. According to the head of the European country, “by joining NATO, Finland strengthens its own security and assumes responsibility.”
