Leaders of Greece and Egypt agree to speed up energy project between both countries

·

Greece’s Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, held a teleconference on Thursday with the Egypt’s President, Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, and agreed to speed up the implementation of the energy interconnection project between both countries.

The teleconference was also attended by the European Investment Bank President Werner Hoyer in Luxembourg.

During the teleconference, Kyriakos stressed that the Greece-Egypt power link will contribute to the diversification of energy sources and roads in Europe and enhance energy security on the European continent.

The issue is even more pertinent now, he said, due to the new landscape created by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“Greece and Egypt will play an important role in this new environment due to their capabilities and strategic position. We are natural bridges between Europe and Africa,” Mitsotakis said.

Later, Mitsotakis underscored Greece’s keenness to enhance cooperation with Egypt on COP27, affirming trust in Egypt’s presidency of the conference.

For his part, El-Sisi praised the special relations with Greece and the level of political coordination between the two countries.

The President also expressed appreciation for Greece’s stances towards Egypt on the bilateral level and within the framework of the EU, adding that they reflect the strength of the long-standing historical relations binding the two countries.
