Greece-Cyprus-Egypt trilateral cooperation constitutes a foundation of peace, Greek PM says

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis highlighted the importance of the Greece-Cyprus-Egypt trilateral cooperation for ensuring peace and stability in the region.


In his joint statements with the President of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who is paying an official visit to Greece, Mitsotakis said that “the trilateral cooperation is a foundation of peace, stability, and prosperity that Greece, Egypt, and Cyprus are consistently serving”.


The Greek Prime Minister stressed that the Mediterranean could be a sea that unites people, instead of dividing them, through initiatives that create conditions for cooperation and peace.


In this context, Mitsotakis said that the agreement between Greece and Egypt for the partial delimitation of maritime zones constitutes a flagship initiative of cooperation to be further expanded.


Mitsotakis also noted that during his meeting with the President of Egypt they discussed about the East Med gas pipeline, to which “any country can participate, on the condition that it abstains from provocations and respects the international law.”


On his part, the President of Egypt said that he agreed with the Greek Prime Minister on the need for a just solution to the Cyprus problem, based on the international law. They also agreed on the necessity of finding a political solution in Libya, which will ensure peace and stability in the wider region.
