‘We have common challenges requiring common solutions’ – Casa

Maltese MEP David Casa and the Cypriot President of the Democratic Rally Averof Neofytou have agreed that their small island nations have shared problems which need common solutions.

The Brussels meeting between the two representatives focused on maintaining their strong political relationships both nationally and on the party level.

The President explained that, ‘The Democratic Rally has always had a good relationship with Partit Nazzjonalista, and will continue to work hand-in-hand to make sure that the challenges which our people face in their daily lives, are addressed not only at a national level, but also at a European level.’

Casa said, ‘As small islands in southern Europe, Malta and Cyprus share common challenges which require common solutions. Both countries have always had good political relationships and this kind of cooperation should continue in the years ahead.’

In addition to discussing their shared challenges, the representatives also spoke about other pressing issues including immigration, social issues and Brexit.
