Greek Cypriots’ reaction to US ambassador to Cyprus

US ambassador to South Cyprus John Koenig’s tweet that asked for a comment on Greek Leader Nikos Anastasiadis’ Moscow visit coinciding with the murder of the opponent politician Borris Nemtsof caused reaction of the Greek Cypriots.

Anastasiadis’ statement regarding the issue is that it is too anti-diplomatic. Nikos Anastasiadis said: “The diplomats’ causing tension between two countries does not serve neither this country nor another.”

Stating that his tweet was misunderstood, US ambassador to South Cyprus Koenig said: “I asked Cypriots for a comment on two irrelevant topics. I did not mention that they are relevant.”

US Embassy made an official statement regarding the rumor that US ambassador’s relieving of the duty and it has been stated that his term of office will be expired in summer 2015.
