Israel and Cyprus agreed to develop even further their cooperation in the fields of water management and firefighting, two areas in which both countries face similar challenges.
Agriculture Minister Costas Kadis met on Wednesday in Nicosia with the Ambassador of Israel Sammuel Revel. The two men agreed to organise a visit of a Cypriot delegation to Israel to enhance cooperation in water management.
During the meeting, Kadis received an invitation from his Israeli counterpart to visit Israel, to exchange views on agricultural cooperation matters.
On firefighting, the two sides took stock of their cooperation so far and decided to extend their collaboration, on the basis of a “government to government” programme, to be proposed by the Israeli side in Cyprus.
