On Tuesday, new Cypriot President Nikos Christodoulides was sworn in as the new president of Cyprus. 

After the swearing-in, the new president promised to find a final solution to the historical dispute in Cyprus.

The swearing-in ceremony marked the beginning of his five-year presidency after Christodoulides won the elections.

2 Weeks ago, Former Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides was elected on Sunday as the next president of Cyprus, with his rival conceding defeat and congratulating him.

Christodoulides, 49, won 51.92% to defeat fellow diplomat Andreas Mavroyiannis, 66, who took 48.08%, according to the government election service in the south of the divided Mediterranean island.

Mavroyiannis told reporters: "Tonight a journey has ended, a great journey that I shared with thousands of people. I regret we couldn't achieve the change that Cyprus needed."
