Tusk to visit
Talks between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Nicos Anastasiades included bilateral ties, regional matters, EU-Israeli relations and the tripartite cooperation between Cyprus, Greece and Israel.
Syria and Iran were also discussed, as well as the initiative undertaken by President Anastasiades as regards the Middle East issue.
In the context of this initiative, European Council President Donald Tusk will visit Cyprus on September 8 and then continue to the Middle East, starting with Israel on September 9 and the Palestinian Authority on September 10, and possibly Egypt as well.
The top European official may be accompanied President Anastasiades during his Middle East tour.
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is expected to visit Israel in the first ten days of September in order to finalise the tripartite meeting initiated last year.
