Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides has said that the Trilateral Meeting among the heads of government of Cyprus, Greece and Jordan that will take place in Nicosia, tomorrow, is of historic importance.
Christodoulides told CNA that the Meeting is the first that will take place at this level, adding that apart from Agreements and a Memorandum of Understanding, which will be signed, it is expected that it will lay the foundations for a strategic cooperation at all levels.
He also said that the Declaration of Nicosia, to be adopted, will constitute a roadmap of the actions which will follow and it will outline the common approaches of the three states on important current issues, including regional developments.
“At the same time and taking into consideration that a fundamental pillar of our foreign policy is to strengthen our relations with all neighbouring states, through the establishment of Trilateral Conferences, tomorrow’s Meeting, following those with Egypt and Israel, constitutes another sound step towards the implementation of the goals of our foreign policy, which include upgrading the Republic of Cyprus and enhancing our country’s role in the region,” he told CNA.
Moreover, the Spokesman noted the bilateral dimension of the Jordanian King’s visit to Cyprus. He recalled that this is his second visit to the island within a year, adding that this along with the fact that Jordan opened a diplomatic mission in Nicosia at the end of 2016 “proves that our relations are now at a new level, with a view to jointly address challenges, through common action and cooperation, always to the benefit of the people of the two countries.”
Christodoulides said that in this framework, the King will be accompanied to Cyprus by the Prime Minister, the Foreign Minister, the Energy Minister and other Ministers and officials of Jordan.
