Next stop of Manfred Weber's listening tour across the European Union is Cyprus, in the very south of our continent.
"As a German citizen I know all too well how it feels when your country is divided into 2 parts. It affects people in every aspect of their daily lives, it is a strong emotional burden.", says Weber during his visit. The Cyprus issue needs to be put higher on the EU's agenda.
"Cyprus deserves a chance to shape the reunification process led by Cypriots, for Cypriots. A reunified island in the European family does not need foreign troops. The Cyprus issue is a European issue and we will provide support in every way we can.", Weber states on social-media. "The Cypriot government and all the Cypriot people can count on our support.".
