Greece’s Foreign Minister, Nikos Dendias, spoke over the phone on Monday with Australia’s Foreign Minister, Marise Payne.
According to a tweet by Dendias, the Foreign Minister’s discussed strengthening bilateral co-operation, combating the effects of the pandemic, regional issues and co-ooperation between Greece and Australia in the framework of international organisations.
Just last year, in a statement announcing Australia’s new Ambassador to Greece, Arthur Spyrou, Marise Payne praised the strong relations between both countries.
“Australia and Greece have an enduring relationship built on strong people-to-people links and bonds forged during both world wars,” Payne wrote in the statement.
“400,000 Australians claim Greek heritage, and this community has made a special contribution to developing and enriching contemporary Australia.”
The recent telephone conversation between the Foreign Ministers is set to only deepen these relations.
