venizelosbankimoonThe guidelines on continuing and upgrading tripartite cooperation were agreed during a meeting of the foreign ministers of Greece, Cyprus and Egypt on the sidelines of the United Nations general assembly in New York on Monday.
Greek Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos and his Cypriot and Egyptian peers, Ioannis Kasoulides and Nabil Fahmy, agreed to delineate exclusive economic zones, so they can seek and exploit mineral reserves, and to deepen cooperation on the political and economic levels.
Venizelos said the swift delineation of the zones would allow them to “tap reserves and give our nations growth prospects,” as reported. He met UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for talks on the eastern Aegean.
Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is due in New York on Saturday.
