The relationship between Cyprus, Greece, and Israel has developed into a “strategic partnership” based on a shared vision for a thriving eastern Mediterranean,” said the Cypriot President Nikos Christodoulides earlier this month.

The summit will be held amid the construction of an “energy highway” that will connect the national electricity grids of Israel, Cyprus, and Greece.

The mammoth, European Union-backed project is going forward as the war in Ukraine and sanctions on Russia are fueling a global energy crisis that has hit the European Union hard, spotlighting the continent’s dependence on foreign sources.
