President Nicos Anastasiades will fly to Jerusalem on Monday evening to participate in the eighth trilateral summit between Cyprus, Greece and Israel, which kicks off on Tuesday.

Ahead of the summit, Anastasiades will have a meeting with Israeli president Isaac.

He will then meet Prime Minister Naftali Bennett at the summit, where they will lead their respective delegations in discussions on a number of subjects, including the Cyprus problem and developments in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The agenda will also include the collaboration between the two countries on matters of national security, energy and the coronavirus, while the two leaders are also expected to sign a memorandum of scientific cooperation.

The Israeli prime minister will then meet with his Greek counterpart before the three leaders brief the media on any developments.

Around 1pm, a lunch will kick off the official trilateral summit, which will cover developments in the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as the three nations’ collaboration in environmental matters in light of COP26, including reusable energy sources, joint actions in case of emergencies, the EastMed pipeline and the EuroAsia Interconnector.

Anastasiades will also brief the others on the latest developments on the Cyprus problem and Turkey’s provocations on land and in the Cyprus EEZ.
