Greece and Israel Foreign Minister’s “eye to eye” on military cooperations


Israel’s Foreign Minister, Israel Katz, is in Greece for an official two-day visit.

On Thursday, Katz met with Greece’s Foreign Minister, Nikos Dendias, where sources say their discussions touched on diplomatic relations between the two countries and their need to find “new ways” to further increase their military cooperation.

The same sources said talks focused on the threat posed by Iran, Turkey’s policy in northern Syria and its actions in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone.

The Israeli embassy announced the discussions would centre around defence and energy issues.

“Mr. Katz’s visit to Athens at a time when deliberations are being held in Israel for the formation of a new government after elections is a sign of the importance Israel attributes to Israeli-Greek relations and maintaining their momentum,” the Israeli embassy notes.

“The two countries attach the highest importance to ongoing exchanges on regional and global developments.”

Foreign Minister Katz is also set to meet with President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
