Cyber security on the table during Israel meetings

Defence Minister Christoforos Fokaides

Cyber threats will be among the issues on the table when Defence Minister Christoforos Fokaides pays an official visit to Israel later on Monday during which he will also discuss with his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Liebrman terrorism, maritime and energy security and bilateral issues.

The defence ministry said Fokaides and Lieberman will review the implementation of the Bilateral Military Cooperation Programme between the two countries and will discuss the latest developments regarding the regional security environment and combating terrorism. Moreover their agenda will include issues regarding maritime and energy security and cyber threats.

This is Fokaides’ second visit to Israel this year, indicating the high level of the two countries’ relations.

His visit takes place in the framework of a series of visits he is paying to countries of the Eastern Mediterranean. He recently visited Cairo where he met his Egyptian counterpart and was received by President Sisi, while next week he will visit Jordan for meetings with the defence minister and King Abdullah. He is also expected to visit Lebanon.

The aim of these visits is to deepen relations with these states with a view to form a cooperation framework in favour of stability and security in the broader region to face common threats.
