The meeting on Thursday between Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and his Israeli counterpart Gabi Ashkenazi focused on bilateral cooperation as well as the recent developments in the eastern Mediterranean.
The strong ties between Greece and Israel and their continuously growing strategic partnership relationship were both reaffirmed at the meeting in Jerusalem. “Welcome to Israel my good friend, Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs @NikosDendias. It is always a great honor to host you here in Jerusalem,” posted Ashkenazi on his Twitter account.
Broad discussions between the Greek and Israeli delegations were held after the end of the Ashkenazi-Dendias meeting, during which the strengthening of bilateral cooperation, the developments in the eastern Mediterranean, and the escalating Turkish provocations were discussed.
The officials also spoke together on their bilateral cooperation in the context of the “3 1” (Greece, Cyprus, Israel and USA) partnership.
