The trilateral summit of the heads of state between Cyprus, Greece and Jordan is expected to take place in the mid of April. The summit will be hosted in Jordan’s capital, Amman.
Diplomatic deliberations also take place on the possibility of scheduling additional trilateral summits with other states of the Eastern Mediterranean basin. For example, intense activity has been recently spotted on finalising the details for the next trilateral summit between Cyprus, Egypt and Greece. The particular summit will also be attended by France. Cyprus Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides announced in the recent visit of Greek counterpart George Katrougalos at Nicosia that diplomatic efforts have flourished with Egypt. The three delegations are in the final preparations stage before hosting the next trilateral summit.
Additional Summits to Be Held
Cyprus Foreign Minister also discussed the possibility of holding additional trilateral summits with other states of the Gulf Sea region. Even though there have been no concrete results in these efforts yet, there is expressed interest from several Gulf countries in holding trilateral summits. France also wishes to join on a permanent basis these trilateral discussions, possibly upgrading them at a quadrilaterallevel. For example, deliberations have started for the next trilateral summits to be held with Lebanon and Armenia at the level of foreign ministers. Athens and Nicosia also examine the possibility of hosting a trilateral summit with the Palestinian Authority in the future.
