As Aram Simonyan noted, previously signed agreement between YSU and the University of Cyprus had to be updated: “We are really committed to the implementation of new programs and new ways of cooperation and we are sure in the establishing closer relations between the two universities.”
Konstantinos Christofides noted about good relations between our nations. Rector of the University of Cyprus also presented their activities, new projects and future plans.
