New trilateral cooperation between Cyprus-Greece-Lebanon
Following the trilateral meetings with Egypt, Israel and Jordan, the Foreign Minister of Cyprus will have a meeting today on the fringes of the EU Foreign Affairs Council in Brussels with his Greek and Lebanon counterparts, with the aim of establishing a new trilateral cooperation scheme.
According to the Government Spokesman, Nikos Christodoulides, this is the first meeting of the three countries at ministerial level, at which the potential areas of cooperation will be explored in a trilateral format to the benefit of the peoples of the region.
A similar meeting with the Foreign Minister of Jordan was held on the margins of the Foreign Affairs Council on 18 January, setting the stage for the tripartite cooperation scheme between Nicosia, Athens and Amman.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister of Lebanon, Samir Moqbel, is making an official two-day visit to Cyprus following an invitation from Cyprus’ Defence Minister Christoforos Fokaides, Christopher Fokaidi. Moqbel will be received by the President Nicos Anastasiades on Monday.
