PM Tsipras: Greece, Cyprus, Egypt Are Pillars of Security in a Wider Destabilised Region

Greece, Cyprus and Egypt are pillars of security in a wider destabilised region, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday said in statements following the conclusion of the trilateral Greece-Cyprus-Egypt summit in Nicosia. 
The prime minister said that they agreed to proceed with the delimitation of maritime zones, in cases that the consultation and cooperation with third countries is not required, with respect for international law and the law of the sea. He noted, however, that this process will not only be in the interest of the three countries, but it will also be a challenge for other countries in the region to cooperate and delimitate their maritime zones on the basis of all principles of international law. 
He made special reference to the need to strengthen cooperation on the issue of regional security in order to address radical Islamism, a threat to our civilization, as he said. Tsipras spoke of further deepening cooperation between Greece and Egypt, stressing that "economic, commercial and energy cooperation contribute effectively and are prerequisites for the consolidation of prosperity but also peace and stability in the region." The prime minister spoke in favour of the resumption of intercommunal talks in Cyprus and said the election of Mustafa Akinci in the Turkish Cypriot community was "interesting".
