During a press conference held jointly with the Foreign Minister of Cyprus, Shoukry highlighted collaboration with the international community to resolve the situation in Gaza, stressing the urgent need to halt military operations that have resulted in civilian casualties and the imperative for an immediate ceasefire.

Shoukry affirmed the keenness of both countries to enhance relations and maintain continuous communication between the presidents, noting that relations have evolved into genuine strategic partnerships that consider each other's interests.

He elaborated on the bilateral discussions with his Cypriot counterpart, followed by an extensive consultation session involving delegations from both countries, indicating discussions on the distinguished strategic cooperation between the two countries and ways to enhance it. 

He also expressed anticipation for scheduling the next Joint High Committee meeting at the presidential level.

Furthermore, the Foreign Minister mentioned the trilateral relations between Egypt, Cyprus, and Greece, expressing anticipation for scheduling the trilateral summit and proper preparation for it.
