Greece, Cyprus Look For Defense Link

NICOSIA — Greece’s new Defense Minister says his country is boosting cooperation with Cyprus to strengthen security in a volatile region.

Panos Kammenos says that the discovery of hydrocarbons in the east Mediterranean as well as the threat posed by the rise of extremism in the region necessitates closer security cooperation.

Speaking after talks with Cypriot counterpart Christoforos Fokaides on Feb. 11, Kammenos said Greece will “very soon” proceed with the delineation of its offshore boundaries where an oil and gas search can begin.

He says Greece is planning joint military exercises with Cyprus, Israel and possibly Egypt that will be carried out in the next few months.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
