    According to a press release issued by FIABCI Cyprus, Nunes' visit to Cyprus "is very important because it probes that the country's real estate market continues, despite the problems of the Cyprus economy, to draw the interest of the most important international organizations of this sector and investors from all over the world."

    During his visit, FIABCI International President will have contacts with state officials, organized real estate agencies and universities, which are academic members of FIABCI Cyprus.

    The Cyprus problem, the situation of the Cypriot economy and the issue of the drilling and exploitation of hydrocarbons in Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) were discussed during a meeting of the House Foreign and European Affairs Chairman Averof Neophytou with a delegation of the UK "Friends of Cyprus" committee, which is paying a three-day visit to Cyprus.

    The delegation comprises co-chairpersons of the Committee, members of the House of Commons Andy Love and Nick De Bois, and is accompanied by the committee's coordinator Mary Southcott.

    According to an official press release, Neophytou and the UK parliamentarians discussed the latest developments in the Cyprus problem, in view of Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades' meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki moon and his meetings with US, Russian and Chinese high-ranking officials, in the framework of the 28th session of the UN General Assembly in New York. Neophytou also informed them about the proposal of the Turkish government for the return of the fenced off town of Famagusta, divided since the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974, to its legal inhabitants, under UN surveillance, as a step towards creating a new momentum for a Cyprus settlement.

    He noted the will of the Republic of Cyprus to find a just and viable settlement and reiterated that the key to achieve this goal is still in the hands of Turkey.
