Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis spoke about the potential to extend the trilateral Greece-Cyprus-Israel cooperation to countries such as India, at the 9th Trilateral Summit on Tuesday September 4 in Nicosia, Cyprus.
At the conclusion of the meeting with Cyprus President Nikos Christodoulides and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Greek Prime Minister said, “I believe that what we could examine thoroughly is the possibility to invite the Indian Prime Minister to our scheme.”
Mitsotakis called the trilateral Greece-Cyprus-Israel resilient and successful with a common interest to further relations in all the sectors, reported amna.gr.
Together, the three leaders outlined developing strategic relations with other countries, such as India, in the next Summit for 2024.
Cyprus President Nikos Christodoulides said, “This is without doubt a dynamic strategic alliance between partners that share the same democratic values and targets and that invest in the common vision of stability, prosperity and security in the area and beyond this.”
Israeli leader, Netanyahu, added, “The relations between the three countries have blossomed, following the trilateral mechanism of collaboration.
“For example, hundreds of thousands of visitors from Israel visited Cyprus and Greece, while there are also investments among the three and very close collaboration in several sectors, including natural gas, electricity grid connectrions, and fighting fires.”
The trilateral members remained committed to collaborating closely on fighting terrorism and extending the collaboration with India, Netanyahu noted.
The next trilateral Summit will be held in Israel during 2024.
