Tsipras, Netanyahu Cite Bilateral 'Strategic Cooperation'

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday expressed satisfaction with what they called the high-level "strategic cooperation" between Greece and Israel, in joint statements following a meeting.
Tsipras noted that the two countries are on a path of strategic cooperation, while adding that this did not rule out a focus on other areas as well, such as tourism, economic relations, research and technology.
The two prime ministers primarily discussed cooperation in the energy sector, which Tsipras said would continue on a ministerial level with meetings to be held in January. Immediately afterward, if not the following day, he added, there will be a new trilateral summit between Greece, Israel and the Republic of Cyprus, which will most likely take place in Nicosia.
The Greek premier said the talks between the two sides had examined the opportunities for cooperation in the fields of exploration and transport of offshore natural gas to Europe, to be discussed at the ministerial-level meeting, which will probably be held in Jerusalem. The aim, he said, was to examine all the specific and practical steps that must be taken in order to ensure that these "do not remain on paper".
