Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Tuesday called the trilateral cooperation scheme established by Greece, Cyprus, Egypt “a beacon of stability in the Eastern Mediterranean,” in joint statements with Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi after the 9th Trilateral Summit of the three countries held in Athens.
He said it acted as a beacon of stability in many areas, “from energy and tourism to the protection of the environment and high technology, trade and shipping”.
As Mitsotakis said “in our common course we added two more memoranda, concerning the interconnection for the transmission of electric power and cooperation in issues concerning the Greek diaspora. Energy is now becoming a bridge between Egypt and Europe”.
“At a time that we seek to diversify our energy sources, Egypt may become a supplier of energy that will be mainly produced by the sun,” Mitsotakis added, pointing out that all three countries are upgrading themselves and coordinating their action on several fronts, from the pandemic to climate change.
