The Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Cyprus and Egypt, Nikos Christodoulides and Sameh Shoukry, held a telephone conversation today. The two Ministers reviewed the latest developments in the broader region of the Eastern Mediterranean, with particular emphasis on the situation in Libya and Turkish actions there, which have escalated tensions in the country and have enhanced destabilization in the region.

The Ministers agreed on the necessity of an immediate cease-fire and a return to the political process, on the basis of the Berlin Conference Conclusions and the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions, including RES 2510.
