Joint Declaration following the 5th Cyprus-Egypt-Greece Trilateral Summit (Excerpts)


The President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr Nicos Anastasiades, the President of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Mr Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, and the Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic, Mr Alexis Tsipras, met in Nicosia on 21 November 2017


On the Palestinian issue, they called for a just, negotiated and lasting peace
settlement entailing a two-state solution based on the relevant UN Security Council
Resolutions, through the establishment of a sovereign, viable and contiguous
Palestinian state based on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital, living in
peace with all its neighbours. They also stressed that the two-state solution is the only
solution that responds satisfactorily to Israeli and Palestinian security needs and
Palestinian aspirations.

They recognised the instrumental role played by Egypt in the conclusion of the
agreement between Fatah and Hamas in Cairo, on 22 October 2017, aiming at intraPalestinian
reconciliation. They welcomed the full return of the Gaza crossings to the
control of the Palestinian Authority as a significant development in the
implementation of the agreement reached in Cairo. They underlined the importance
that the agreement delivers on the ground
