Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi headed to Paphos, Cyprus, on Thursday to meet with his Greek, Cypriot and Emirati counterparts.
Cypriot Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed and Ashkenazi plan to establish a forum for regular meetings between ministers and diplomats to promote their countries’ shared regional strategic interests.
Ashkenazi will meet with each foreign minister individually, before a meeting of all four together. He is also set to meet with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades as well.
On the agenda for the foreign ministers’ meetings are economic issues, security, tourism, battling coronavirus and establishing a “green corridor” for travel between the countries.
