Anastasiades-Sisi discuss issues of Cyprus-Egypt mutual interest

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and his Egyptian counterpart  Abdel Fattah el-Sisi have discussed issues of mutual interest, developments in  the Eastern Mediterranean and Covid-19 pandemic issues.

The telephone conversation took place late on Thursday, and Anastasiades announced it on his Twitter account.

Cyprus-Egypt relations have blossomed in recent years mainly founded on an alliance to make the East Mediterranean a stable energy hub also requiring military and political cooperation.

As part of regional energy cooperation, in January 2019, seven countries – Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Israel, Jordan, Palestine and Italy – launched the East Mediterranean Gas Forum.
