Greece, Egypt agree to establish high-level cooperation council


Greece and Egypt have agreed to establish a high-level cooperation council comprising several members of Cabinet, Ekathimerini reported.

Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis made the announcement on Thursday during a visit to Egypt, where he met with President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi.

Mitsotakis said he hoped the first council would take place in Greece in early 2024.

“We’re hoping… we will invest in this relationship even further, to the mutual benefit of Greece and Egypt and our two peoples,” Mitsotakis said.

When asked to comment on where relations with Egypt stand in the broader context of the Eastern Mediterranean, the Greek prime minister said ties are “autonomous and strong.”

Mitsotakis added that the meeting with Sisi was “short but productive,” with talks turning to “new prospects for cooperation, with a particular focus on energy issues.”
