More partners should join Egypt-Cyprus-Greece cooperation
President Anastasiades said that the Greece-Cyprus-Egypt trilateral meeting is an alliance of neighbouring countries based on the natural gas in the region, in an interview with Greek public broadcaster ERT on Tuesday.
The goal of the three countries, Anastasiades said, is to stick to the cooperation treaties in the wider area, with the participation of other countries, such as Israel, Jordan and Lebanon.
Anastasiades had also mentioned the importance of Greece’s role in the energy sector during his interview, saying that the estimation that future natural gas reserves would be found will make the energy interconnection with Europe a reality.
On Israel-Egypt relations, Anastasiades said that he hoped there would be a restart of dialogue between the two countries on natural gas issues.
He assured that he has good relations with both leaders, which is a fact that allows, as he revealed, that allows Cyprus to play a mediation role for the re-establishment of relations between the two countries.
