The foreign ministers of Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Greece and Cyprus will meet in Paphos, Cyprus on Friday, the Israeli foreign ministry said in a statement.

The statement issued Thursday said it would be the first meeting of its kind involving the four nations, as part of efforts to advance regional strategic interests.

The ministers would discuss economic and security issues, the coronavirus pandemic, and possible travel corridors to encourage tourism, said the statement.

They would meet later with Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades, it added.

Last year, Israel and the UAE normalised ties, one of four deals the US brokered between Israel and Arab countries.
