The seventh tripartite summit between Egypt, Cyprus, and Greece will be convened on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 in Cairo, according to a governmental statement published on SIS.
President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, and Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades will discuss ways of cooperation among the three countries in the fields of economics, investment, and energy. Similarly, they will review efforts to combat terrorism and illegal immigration.
Moreover, the summit will follow up developments on the East Mediterranean Gas Forum, particularly in the midst of Turkey’s recent spate of offshore drilling in Cypriot waters.
On the other side, a Greek news website reported that Mitsotakis expected to hail the tripartite partnership with Egypt and Greece as a model for other agreements between states in the areas of investments, energy, and culture, while calling for a restart to Cyprus reunification talks.
