Sue Surkes is The Times of Israel's environment reporter.

Environmental Protection Minister Tamar Zandberg meets with Cypriot Minister of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment Costas Kadis on the sidelines of the UN climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

“Israel and Cyprus are both located in an area that is heavily affected by the climate crisis and from human activity,” Zandberg says. “We will strengthen and broaden cooperation between the two countries.”

“Given the common challenges and similar climate, it is natural that we should cooperate in the fields of environment and climate change,” she adds.
