A new date for the Cyprus-Greece-Israel trilateral summit to be announced in the coming days

The date for the trilateral summit between Cyprus, Greece and Israel, set to take place on January 8 in Nicosia, will be announced within the coming days, Government Spokesman Nicos Christodoulides has said explaining the reason for the postponement.

Speaking in the Presidential Palace, Christodoulides said that the reason for the postponement concerns an important vote at the Israeli parliament (Knesset) on an internal issue that the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be present.

Christodoulides noted that Israel had proposed the trilateral summit to be held on the same day in Israel. However, the spokesman said, this could not be made possible by both the Cypriot and the Greek side.

Finally, Christodoulides said that “we are in touch through the diplomatic mission to set a new date for the trilateral summit”.
