Newsroom / CNA

The strengthening of ties and cooperation between Cyprus, Greece, and Egypt sends strong messages regarding the determination of the three countries to work together for peace and stability in the region, deputy government spokesman Panayiotis Sentonas said on Tuesday. 

Speaking ahead of the 8th Trilateral Summit between Cyprus, Greece and Egypt to take place on Wednesday in Nicosia, with the participation of the Presidents of Cyprus and Egypt, and the Prime Minister of Greece, Sentonas said that the summit takes on special significance because it is being held in a period of Turkish provocations, which affect the three countries and broader regional security.

On the summit’s agenda is Turkey's ongoing aggressiveness in the eastern Mediterranean and Aegean, as well as its move to reopen the coastal front of Varosha in violation of relevant UN resolutions. The Cyprus Problem is also set to be discussed, Sentonas said, noting that President Anastasiades will brief his Greek and Egyptian counterparts on latest developments and reaffirm his readiness to embark on a fresh initiative by the UNSG for a Cyprus settlement. 

Other issues on the agenda are the results and progress of the trilateral mechanism in current and new areas, energy, immigration, terrorism, regional issues such as the situation in Syria, Libya and the peace process in the Middle East, as well as the coronavirus pandemic.
 
A joint declaration will be adopted, expressing the views of Cyprus, Greece and Egypt.

Sisi's arrival to bring heightened security measures

Cyprus police said on Tuesday that increased security measures are to be taken on Wednesday in view of the Egyptian President's official visit to Cyprus.

Police said that as part of the security measures, there will be occasional road closures, in both the Larnaca and Nicosia districts, with the public urged to show patience.
