The Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has traveled to Jerusalem for a summit meeting between Greece, Cyprus and Israel, the second after January this year. The Greek PM will meet with Cypriot President Nikos Anastasiades and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, with a joint statement and agreement in research and technology expected.

Among other issues, the three leaders will discuss cooperation in energy, environment, healthcare, tourism and developments in the broader region, in light of Turkey’s recent stance and the change of power in the USA. Prior to the trilateral meeting there will be bilateral meetings between Greece-Israel and Cyprus-Israel. The Greek and Israeli sides will focus on cooperation in the farming sector, research and technology, tourism, trade and energy.

On his trip to Israel, the Greek PM is accompanied by the Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs Giorgos Katrougalos and the General Secretary of International Economic Relations Giorgos Tsipras.
