In his remarks at the press conference, the Cypriot leader welcomed HM King Abdullah and the Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras, saying their meeting today underlined the excellent relations and friendship between the three countries, and that it sets the ground for strategic regional cooperation and expand it in many fields to achieve tangible results at the political, economic and social levels for the interest of “our peoples and countries”.
He said that in their meeting, the leaders adopted the “first trilateral summit declaration”, which is considered as a roadmap of the vision and priorities of a tripartite approach that reflects a common understanding of the three nations that cooperation will help counter regional challenges and bring about peace, security and prosperity.
President Anastasiades said the talks were an opportunity to look into ways to support cooperation in renewable energy and energy efficiency, commercial shipping, tourism, agriculture, water sources and fish farm management, protection of antiquities and health fields.
He said fighting terrorism is a key challenge facing the Middle East that requires close cooperation between “our countries”. He also said Cyprus supports efforts by the international community to revive the Middle East peace process and the role played by regional parties, like Jordan.
The Cypriot leader said he recognised the burdens placed by the refugee crisis on Jordan, adding that his country was one of the first countries inside the European Union that called for providing strong and tangible support to Syria’s neighbours, including Jordan.
He said Cyprus and Greece will continue to support Jordan inside the EU, including pushing for implementation of partnership priorities.
