Cyprus FM on 'short but important' visit to Israel

Christodoulides is set to meet with his Israeli counterpart to discuss ways of pushing cooperation between the two countries even further


The “short but important” visit of Cyprus foreign minister Nikos Christodoulides to Israel on Tuesday, as his Isreali counterpart Gabi Ashkenazi described it in a tweet, is set to focus on ways to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries.

Ashkenazi’s tweet welcomed Christodoulides to Israel, adding that he looked forward to discussing “increased cooperation in the economic, security and strategic realms.”

A press release by the Cyprus foreign ministry said the tete-a-tete meeting between Christodoulides and Ashkenazi was expected to review Cyprus-Israeli relations and discuss trilateral cooperation with Greece and ways to develop and expand it.

They will also exchange views on regional issues, with emphasis on the latest developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, the press release noted.

Due to the general situation concerning the COVID-19 pandemic and the protection measures taken, the meeting will be hosted at the Ben Gurion airport.
