During the last few years the political dialogue between the two countries, which was already intense, has become even closer. There have been several official meetings of government representatives both in Italy and Cyprus. All meetings and discussions have always taken place in a friendly atmosphere and they were all oriented to achieve concrete results.
Moreover, in this period several important bilateral agreements have been achieved allowing a further boost for cooperation between the two countries in a wide range of sectors, such as organised crime, environmental protection, navigation and promotion of cultural and scientific cooperation. Of particular importance the cooperation in the field of archeology, with several Italian missions present on the Cypriot territory, and the diffusion of Italian culture and language, which attract more and more people. Even the economic relations have undergone a remarkable growth over the last few years, with Italy now being one of the most important partner of Cyprus.
In addition, the dialogue with the Turkish-Cypriot community is also very intense and dynamic facilitating Italy to undertake any useful action to find a solution to the Cyprus problem, which is of primary concern also for our country.
In 2021 we celebrated 60 years of diplomatic relations between Italy and Cyprus. The Embassy of Italy, in order to pay a tribute to this important milestone, has published a booklet that testifies, through a series of photos and historical documents, the excellent relations that exist between our two countries.
