The Defence Ministers of Cyprus, Greece and Egypt will hold a trilateral meeting on Tuesday, November 5, in Athens during which they will discuss developments in the Eastern Mediterranean as well as about the cooperation of the three countries on defence and security issues, CNA has learned.

Cyprus Defence Minister Savvas Angelides will fly to the Greek capital on Tuesday for the meeting with his Greek and Egyptian counterparts, Nikos Panagiotopoulos and Mohamed Zaki.
