Cyprus and Israel focus cooperation on water management and firefighting

Israel and Cyprus agreed to develop even further their cooperation in the fields of water management and firefighting, two areas in which both countries face similar challenges.

According to an announcement, Agriculture Minister Costa Kadis met on Wednesday in Nicosia with the Ambassador of Israel Smuel Revel. The two men agreed to organize a visit of a Cypriot delegation to Israel to enhance cooperation in water management.

Moreover, during the meeting Minister Kadis was handed an invitation from his Israeli counterpart to visit Israel, in order to exchange views on agricultural cooperation matters.

On firefighting, the two sides took stock of their cooperation so far and decided to extend their collaboration, on the basis of a government to government programme, to be proposed by the Israeli side in Cyprus.
