Brussels, Jun 17 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos will begin his visit to London on 26 July, following an invitation by British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Papadopoulos also announced here in Brussels, speaking to Cypriot journalists covering the European Council, that he would be visiting Paris as well, on 4 November, at the invitation of his French counterpart Jacques Chirac.

Blair's invitation was extended to Papadopoulos last month but no date was announced at the time.

Britain assumes the six monthly presidency of the European Union on July 1 and is also the current president of the G8 group, which meets at the beginning of July.
