Trilateral geography covers Eastern Mediterranean and Near East, Spokesman says

There is a geography of trilateral relations in place which covers the whole region of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Near East, Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou has said, referring to the second Trilateral Summit between Cyprus, Greece and Jordan, to take place on Sunday in Amman, and the Trilateral Meeting between Cyprus, Greece and Lebanon, on a Foreign Ministry level, which took place on Wednesday in Beirut.

Prodromou said the network of trilateral cooperation has been enriched by the Cyprus-Greece-Lebanon relationship, which has important prospects in the energy field, and is completed by promoting trilateral cooperation between Cyprus, Greece and Jordan.

He said that the second Cyprus-Greece-Jordan Summit would further promote this relationship, which is developing a geography of trilateral relations, which covers the whole region of the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East.

Prodromou said the success of the Cyprus-Greece-Jordan relationship was indicated by the interest to participate expressed by other Arab states, adding that there is already an interest to hold meetings with the participation of a fourth neighbouring country. CNA sources said this country was Iraq.

Referring to Sunday’s second Trilateral summit in Amman, with the participation of President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and King Abdullah II of Jordan, the Spokesman said the network of trilateral cooperation is constantly expanding and developing, and is already seen as an international model.

This cooperation, he added, held many advantages and benefits for all participating countries, especially Cyprus, enhancing the country’s role as a European pylon of stability in the region, as well as its ability to strengthen regional security.

Prodromou noted that this also reflected on President Anastasiades’ efforts to reach a true solution of the Cyprus problem, which would bring about peace, stability and cooperation without foreign guardianship.

The Spokesman said Jordan was a very important country in the region and the Arab world in maintaining the balance in the Near and Middle East, and has played a significant role along with Lebanon in addressing the migration issue. Cyprus also contributes financially in programmes through the United Nations, he pointed out.

During the Summit in Amman, bilateral agreements will also be signed on combatting terrorism, organised crime and drug trafficking, as well as a memorandum on research, innovation and technology.

Furthermore, an agreement on the avoidance of double taxation is being promoted for the near future.

During his trip to Amman, President Anastasiades will be accompanied by Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Christodoulides, Deputy Minister for Tourism Savvas Perdios and Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou.
