Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara hosted the President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in their home on Wednesday night.

The two countries are in Israel because of a budding alliance they are forging.On Thursday, the three leaders will continue to meet in Beersheba, for the fifth trilateral meeting in just under three years.

Washington, according to Greek media reports, is already examining the prospect of a four-way meeting between the US, Greece, Israel and Cyprus at the level of foreign ministers.

Holding the upcoming trilateral meeting in Beersheba, where the leaders are expected to visit the Computer Emergency Response Team center, underlines a commitment to jointly face all threats, including cyber threats, one diplomatic official said.


The talks between the leaders are expected to touch on a wide range of issues, from cybersecurity, to moving forward the $7 billion plan to lay a gas pipeline from Israeli and Cypriot gas fields, through Crete, to Italy and further distribution throughout Europe.
