Greece’s Defence Minister Nikos Dendias met with Israel’s Defence Minister Yoav Gallant on Monday in Israel.
In a statement on social media after the meeting, Dendias said the two leaders “highlighted the excellent level of cooperation between our countries’ Armed Forces.”
“We also agreed to enhance our mutually beneficial cooperation in the area of defence research and technology with the involvement of the defence industry, research institutions, and other innovation bodies,” he added.
Dendias and Gallant also discussed regional collaboration issues and security, and stability challenges in the greater region of the East Mediterranean.
For his part, Gallant said Israel would aid Greece during its current wildfire crisis just as the Greek government assisted Israel in the past.
