Cyprus President urges de-escalation in meeting with Israeli Prime Minister




In a significant diplomatic visit, the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Nikos Christodoulides, arrived in Israel to engage in crucial discussions with the country’s top leaders, President Isaac Herzog and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The President stressed Nicosia’s support and conveyed messages on the need to de-escalate the crisis and continue humanitarian assistance in Gaza.

At the same time, the Cypriot President stressed once again the need to avoid civilian casualties on all sides and to start a political dialogue that will lead towards a Middle East solution.

President Herzog stressed the ties and sincere friendship that unite Israel and Cyprus and the fact that even in these critical times, both countries are standing together.

Prime Minister Netanyahu thanked the President for his strong support. He said that President Christodoulides was visiting Israel at a time when there was a battle between civilisation and barbarism.

He stressed that what the communities of Israel have experienced is the worst kind of atrocities against Jews since the Holocaust. They murdered, he said, children in front of their parents and parents in front of their children, burned people alive and raped them.
