NICOSIA – Israel and Cyprus agreed on Tuesday to expand their cooperation on energy issues, including the use of pipelines and electricity grids to link to European markets, as both countries develop natural gas fields off their coasts.

“We want to achieve peace, peace depends on security and ultimately if you don’t have the capacity to defend that peace it collapses very rapidly in our area,” Netanyahu said.

Although Cyprus is considered sympathetic towards Palestinians, its relations with Israel have grown in recent years. Anastasiades and Netanyahu enjoy particular rapport, with Anastasiades referring to the Israeli Prime Minister as his “dear friend Bibi” at least once.
