Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi arrived early on Wednesday on the Greek island of Crete for the sixth round of a tripartite cooperation summit between the leaders of Greece, Cyprus and Egypt.

The summit aims to capitalise on the outcomes of the past five tripartite gatherings, evaluate developments in cooperation between the three states and assess progress on ongoing projects, Egyptian presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said on Tuesday. 

The summit will also look at means to boost political coordination between the three countries, to combat threats in the Middle East and the Mediterranean region. 

During the visit, El-Sisi will hold talks with Greek PM Alexis Tsipras to discuss bilateral relations.

He will also meet with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades to discuss boosting economic and commercial relations between the two countries.  

The tripartite summit was first held in Cairo in 2014, with the latest one held in Nicosia, Cyprus in November 2017.
