Vatican to build Cyprus embassy

(News in Cyprus)
The Cabinet has approved the leasing of state property in Nicosia’s Aglandjia area to construct a Vatican City State embassy. Deputy Government Spokesperson Niovi Parissinos said the Vatican’s administration would build the embassy within five years from signing the lease contract and obtaining all necessary permits by the authorities. The decision comes days before Pope Francis makes his first visit to Cyprus on 2 December. His trip will focus on migration, Catholic-Orthodox relations and promoting peace in a region known more for its vacation spots than its ongoing political tensions.
