Leaders of Cyprus, Greece, and Egypt Vow to be “Pillars of Regional Stability”

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in a meeting with Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades on Tuesday, stressed that both countries constitute pillars of stability in an unstable area.

The two leaders are meeting in Nicosia during the fifth trilateral summit between Cyprus, Greece and Egypt.

On Monday, President of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi addressed a special session of the House plenary where he said that Cyprus and Egypt; two nations with historical ties of friendship, are committed to working together to face regional challenges, particularly terrorism and the migrant crisis.

Terrorism; he said, is a major threat facing the world today, and can only be dealt with through “multi-faceted cooperation”.

The trilateral summit will mainly cover the energy sector, and geopolitical developments in the region.

After the talks, the three leaders will sign a Memorandum of Cooperation and will make statements to the Press.

A working lunch is also scheduled in honour of President Fattah el-Sisi and Premier Tsipras.
