Netanyahu to discuss gas, Palestinian issue in Cyprus visit

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled on Tuesday to take his first visit abroad since his re-election in March, traveling 45 minutes to Cyprus for a visit of less than 12 hours.

Netanyahu’s visit to Cyprus follows by just over a month a visit to Jerusalem by Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades, whom Netanyahu welcomed as a “great friend of Israel.”

While a large focus of the talks between the two leaders in Nicosia is expected to center on energy and gas matters, the two men are also expected to discuss the Palestinian issue.
