Strategic ties with Jordan are a fundamental pillar of Cyprus’ foreign policy, House President says
CNA - CYPRUS/Nicosia 15/04/2019 13:46

Developing strategic ties with neighbouring countries, such as Jordan, is a fundamental pillar of Cyprus’ foreign policy, with the ultimate aim of building a broader network of cooperation and creating an organisation of security and cooperation among the countries of the region, President of the House of Representatives Demetris Syllouris said in his opening speech at the First Trilateral Meeting of Presidents of Parliament of Jordan, Greece and Cyprus, in the Dead Sea.
This aim, he said, was of major importance in the light of serious provocations and rapid developments in the broader region, Syllouris said, noting that in the case of Cyprus, these provocations originate in Turkey and concern both the Cyprus problem and the Republic of Cyprus’ inalienable rights within its exclusive economic zone, two issues relating to blatant violations of international law.
