Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will travel to Cyprus next month to increase security coordination between the two countries and discuss cooperation on recent natural gas finds in Israeli and Cypriot waters.
In what is said to be the first-ever visit by an Israeli prime minister to Cyprus, Netanyahu will reportedly sign a cooperation agreement relating to the protection of natural gas drilling sites, and also request to station Israeli aircraft in Cyprus.
The natural gas finds in Israeli and Cypriot waters coincide with the dramatic erosion in Israeli-Turkish relations to offer the two countries an opportunity to deepen strategic cooperation.
