Greek Cypriot president discharged from hospital

Greek Cypriot President Demetris Christofias was discharged from hospital on Tuesday after a short stay probably triggered by exhaustion, doctors said.

Christofias, 64, went to hospital on his physician's advice after feeling unwell on Tuesday afternoon. Tests carried out gave Christofias the all-clear, medics said.

The Greek Cypriot president, who was briefly admitted into a cardiological ward, left hospital in the Greek Cypriot capital Nicosia on Tuesday night. "I'm fine, can't you see me?" he joked to waiting journalists.

Christofias represents his Greek Cypriot community in reunification talks with Mehmet Ali Talat, the Turkish Cypriot leader.

He and Talat met U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who visited the island on Monday to encourage progress in the slow-moving peace talks.

At a news conference with Ban on Monday, Christofias had looked tired. "It was probably tiredness and a very heavy schedule which led him here," said Evagoras Nicolaides, director of the cardiological department of Nicosia general hospital.
