Biden has started a three-day visit to the island for talks with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades.
The Cypriot government should not agree on the US pressure for tougher sanctions against Russia, the chairman of the opposition movement Civil Union Giorgios Lillikas has said.
Earlier, he was Cyprus’ foreign minister. Last year Lillikas run for presidency.
“They (sanctions) can cause even greater damage to our friendly relations. Russia’s counter-measures can upset Cyprus’ economy,” he said.
Cooperation with the United States “should not hamper friendly relations with other countries: we cannot afford the situation that Cyprus has faced”, Lillikas said.
