During a ceremony marking Cyprus’ Independence Day on Tuesday, loannou said that the 60-year-old ties with Jordan have grown steadily since their establishment on February 26, 1962.

He added that the opening of the Cypriot embassy in Amman in 2009 and of the Jordanian embassy in Nicosia in 2016 were critical in the development of relations between the two countries.

In recent years, Cyprus and Jordan have exchanged frequent visits at various levels, the most recent being His Majesty King Abdullah’s visit to Cyprus in last December, said the envoy.

According to Ioannou, the trilateral mechanism established a few years ago between Cyprus, Jordan, and Greece, has added a new dimension to Cyprus cooperation with Jordan.

The three countries, he said, share perspectives on matters of mutual interest and attempt to address common challenges, for the benefit of all three nations and of regional stability.

“In the framework of this trilateral mechanism, the president of Cyprus hosted the first trilateral summit in 2018; His Majesty and the prime minister of Greece were present. President Anastasiades looks forward to welcoming them again to Nicosia later this year for the 4th trilateral summit,” said the ambassador.

He said many Jordanians visit Cyprus frequently for holidays, investments, or university studies.

“Our world is facing many challenges which can only be addressed through dialogue and the fundamental respect for international law of all countries,” he said.
