Cyprus confirms one-way humanitarian maritime corridor to Gaza

Government Spokesman addresses concerns amid expected visit from Palestinian Foreign Minister


Cyprus Government Spokesman Konstantinos Letymbiotis confirmed on Friday that the planned humanitarian corridor to Gaza is designed as a one-way maritime route for delivering aid. He indicated that the Palestinian Authority's Foreign Minister is anticipated to visit Cyprus soon.

Responding to concerns raised by Palestinian officials about potential relocations from Gaza via the aid ships, Letymbiotis stated that Cyprus' President and Foreign Minister had previously engaged with Palestinian leadership to discuss the initiative. He highlighted Foreign Minister Constantinos Kombos' October visit to Ramallah, emphasizing that the initiative considers Palestinian Authority concerns.

The "Amalthea" initiative by the Republic of Cyprus outlines a maritime route solely for delivering humanitarian assistance to Gaza. Letymbiotis confirmed that the Palestinian Foreign Minister's visit to Cyprus is forthcoming, with a specific date yet to be determined.
