NICOSIA — Greece, Italy, France and Cyprus are proceeding to establish a quadrilateral coordinated presence in the Eastern Mediterranean by developing initiatives and expanding cooperation with other countries to consolidate security and stability in the region.

The head of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff, General Konstantinos Floros, and the Greek side attach special importance to this initiative, while they played a leading role in the achievement of an agreement, putting it into practice with the exercise "Eunomia 20" in September 2020.

In this context, video conferences are held at regular intervals, in which the competent executive bodies of the four countries discuss issues relating to unfolding initiatives and expanding cooperation with other countries, in order to consolidate security and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean region.

In the last meeting, among other issues, Greece sought and assumed the organisation of the next exercise "Eunomia 21".

This initiative sends a clear message of the four countries' cooperation and good neighbourliness, as well as their steadfast pursuit of a secure and peaceful environment in the Eastern Mediterranean, in accordance with international law and its requirements.
