A milestone partnership

Jan 17,2018 - Last updated at Jan 17,2018

The trilateral partnership struck between Cyprus, Greece and Jordan at the summit held between His Majesty King Abdullah, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Nicosia Tuesday is an exemplary model for relations between countries in the same region that deserves appreciation and emulation. 

The three leaders struck a new and promising note in their relations covering state and private relations on many fronts including trade, commerce, energy, tourism, aviation, agriculture, maritime shipping as well as regional conflicts including the Palestinian problem, the Syrian civil war, the Iraqi case, refugee issues and, of course, regional security and means to combat terrorism in all its forms.

The King may have summed up the challenges addressed by the three leaders when he said at their joint press conference at the conclusion of their historic summit that “it is no secret that we live in a very tough neighbourhood, rife with challenges, but also with opportunities; and together, our chances of capitalising on these opportunities and taking on these challenges increase tenfold”. 

Against this backdrop, the stronger than ever relations forged at the summit between Cyprus, Greece and Jordan is truly a milestone and ushers in new horizons hitherto unexplored between them. 

Cypriot President Anastasiades’ holding of the summit with His Majesty King Abdullah and Greek Prime Minister Tsipras in his country’s capital Nicosia is a demonstration of a new vision for the future that deserves recognition and commendation for opening new vistas of relations between the three countries. 


There is every hope that what the three leaders have in mind to foster new relations between their countries will bear fruit not only for their own countries but also for the entire region.
