President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades announced on Sunday he will convene a meeting of the National Council next week to inform leaders of the parliamentary political parties on the developments on the Cyprus issue.

Speaking in Nicosia on Sunday, the President was asked about a letter he sent to the 27 EU governments over the Turkish demand for the four liberties to apply for Turkish citizens after a solution to the Cyprus issue. The President said "as I have outlined in the letter, it is not an issue that concerns merely one country but the entirety of the EU and I believe that the Republic of Cyprus cannot negotiate on behalf of the EU countries or create precedents which might cause significant issues in the EU".
