Cyprus And Egypt To Establish Joint Maritime Committee

Cyprus And Egypt To Establish Joint Maritime Committee

Cyprus and Egypt decided the establishment of a Joint Maritime Committee in the context of the first Intergovernmental meeting between the two countries, held in Cairo last Saturday.

According to a press release by Deputy Ministry of Shipping, Cypriot Deputy Minister Vassilios Demetriades had a meeting with his Egyptian counterpart Kamel Al Wazir.

The meeting confirmed the excellent relations between the two countries in the field of shipping and reviewed the Bilateral Shipping Agreement, signed in 2006.

It was also decided to strengthen cooperation by establishing a Joint Maritime Committee, which will meet on a regular basis to exchange views and establish cooperation at bilateral, regional and international level with the aim of enhancing maritime safety, supporting protection initiatives of the marine environment and the promotion of the environmental sustainability of shipping and the development of non-discriminatory maritime transport in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The two sides also agreed to address the issue of digital maritime safety and maritime passenger connectivity within the Joint Maritime Committee.

The Egyptian Minister of Transport praised the initiative of Cyprus to expand the Mediterranean Memorandum of Cooperation on Port State Control, based in Alexandria, with an invitation to all  Mediterranean EU member states to join the Memorandum. This initiative is expected to contribute to the enhancement of maritime safety and the protection of the marine environment in the Mediterranean basin, it is noted.

The next meeting of the two sides is expected to take place in Cyprus in October on the sidelines of the Conference "Maritime Cyprus 2021" where the Egyptian Minister is expected to attend, after accepting an invitation by Dimitriades.
