“A few years ago we had a fire in Carmel that would have burnt Haifa. This did not happen due the Greek firefighters that were there,” stated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, highlighting the in-depth building of relations between the three countries at the 4th Greece-Cyprus-Israel Summit in Nicosia.

Referring to the energy sector he said that it was an important project, while noting that, besides the economic benefits, there was also human capital.

Netanyahu pointed out that many Israelis visit Greece and Cyprus, and asked that Greeks and Cypriots reciprocate by visiting Israel. “I would like you to come too,” he said, noting that the three countries share the same dream and “are bound under the same sky”.

He also attacked regime in Tehran, saying that they want the destruction of Israel and that Iran has already attempted to plant dangerous weapons inside Syria.
