Cyprus is expanding its defence cooperation with other EU member states, following a Defence Cooperation Agreement signed with Romania, on Monday.

In particular, the Agreement for the new Defence Cooperation was signed by the Minister of Defense Charalambos Petrides and his Romanian counterpart Vasile Dincu, on the sidelines of the European Union Foreign Affairs informal meeting at the level of Ministers of Defense, in Prague.

Defence ministry spokesman, Andreas Stylianou, told CNA that the Agreement signed acts as a launch pad for cooperation with Romania and in its initial stages provides for the exchange of personnel, joint training of personnel and common military training subjects.

He added that both sides will look into the prospects for deepening cooperation on a wider level, at a later stage.
