Cyprus’s Justice Minister, Anna Procopiou, advocates for a global strategy to combat migrant smuggling at the International Conference on a Global Alliance to Counter Migrant Smuggling. She emphasizes international cooperation, stringent punitive measures against traffickers, the use of technology to disrupt smuggling networks, and the formation of a global coalition for shared insights and coordinated response.
The GreekCypriot Collaborative Humanitarian Initiative aims to provide aid to the Gaza Strip through a proposed sea corridor. Greece, Cyprus, and France are working together with international organizations, the United Nations, and Israel to coordinate this effort. However, the absence of a safe port in Gaza poses a challenge, and discussions are ongoing to address security measures and ensure the efficient and safe delivery of aid. Despite these challenges, the collaboration between nations and organizations brings hope for the success of this initiative in providing muchneeded relief to those affected by the crisis in Gaza.
