US NSC Chief joins Cyprus-Israel talks on maritime assistance

Curtis Ried addresses Gaza humanitarian needs and condemns Houthi attacks in Red Sea


Curtis Ried, the Chief of Staff for the U.S. National Security Council (NSC) joined the Republic of Cyprus and Israeli officials "for productive discussions on Cyprus’s maritime assistance corridor concept".

A US Embassy press release said on Friday that "the United States remains committed to working with Israel, the ROC, and other partners, including the United Nations, to address the acute humanitarian needs of civilians in Gaza".

Ried also discussed the international community’s response to the Houthis’ reckless and unlawful attacks against maritime traffic in the Red Sea, including commercial ships.

The attacks, the press release added, pose an unacceptable threat to global commerce and navigational rights and freedoms.

"In meetings with the Republic of Cyprus officials, Ried discussed the strength of the U.S.- Republic of Cyprus bilateral relationship and explored ways to continue deepening political, economic, security, and person-to-person ties between the two countries", the press release concluded.
