Nicosia's proposal for a maritime humanitarian corridor from Cyprus to the Gaza Strip is being treated positively, according to the President of the Republic, Nikos Christodoulides, after a telephone conversation he had with the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, while noting that he is also expected to speak in the evening with French President Emmanuel Macron.

"I had a long telephone conversation with the Prime Minister of Israel and this evening I will have (a telephone conversation) with the President of France precisely to see how the proposal we have developed can be implemented" said the President of the Republic from Paphos where he was for the inauguration of the building of the School of Tourism, Hospitality and Entrepreneurship Management of TEPAK.

"We are discussing the details and I hope that soon we will be able to proceed to the implementation stage," he said.

When asked if Nicosia's proposal is viewed positively, President Christodoulidis answered in the affirmative. "Of course they're positive," he said.

Asked how it will proceed and whether there will be control (of the humanitarian aid), the PtD said that "of course it will be controlled, both from Cyprus where the humanitarian aid will leave but also where it will end up".

"We are discussing all these details exactly," he added.
