Just two months after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu visited Cyprus, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman will go there Monday to push forward implementation of a recently signed search-and rescue agreement.

Netanyahu and Cypriot President Demetris Christofias signed the agreement in February, but Israeli officials – recognizing the sensitivity of anything smacking of a security agreement -- quickly denied at the time that it had any military significance. Rather, they said the agreement – signed during the first ever visit to Cyprus by an Israeli prime minister -- only dealt with assistance the two countries would give one another in a time of crisis.
