Cyprus and Israel are making efforts to resolve the dispute concerning the division of the Aphrodite deposit.
For this purpose, the Minister of Energy Natasa Pileidou is meeting today in Nicosia with her Israeli counterpart, Karin Elharar.
The two countries are in the process of appointing an expert, with a mandate to scrutinize the facts and reach a fair and mutually beneficial agreement.
According to a publication of an Israeli economic newspaper, Israel is considering the possibility of proposing to Nicosia, a new framework for resolving the dispute.
In particular, he is expected to propose that the Cypriot side take over the percentage of the deposit that Israel considers to be its own, in return for monetary compensation.
