Netanyahu arrives in Cyprus, meets President Christofias

CYPRUS - Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with Cypriot President Dimitris Christofias at the presidential residence in Nicosia, launching the first visit ever to the island by an Israeli prime minister.
Prior to his departure, Netanyahu, when asked about the agenda of the day-long visit, responded with one word: gas.
Netanyahu landed at the military air base in Paphos, in southwestern Cyprus, and then drove an hour and a half to the meeting in Nicosia. He is also set to meet with Cyprus' head of opposition and foreign minister.
