On his part, President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades said that the signing of the East Med agreement is a historic moment, which reflects the goals of the trilateral cooperation since its inauguration. “The aim was the collaboration –not rivalry– in the Middle East, both on energy issues and on other fields of common interest”, Anastasiades said.

“Today is a historic day and the talks that will be held in this context will lay the foundations for further, even stronger, cooperation between the countries of the Middle East”, he concluded.
