The Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel, Gabi Ashkenazi, on Monday night.

The main topic of discussion was the development of bilateral relations in a number of areas, as well as regional cooperation schemes in the light of the new opportunities that open up after the historic agreement on the normalization of Israel’s relations with the United Arab Emirates.

The Greek Prime Minister and the Israeli Foreign Minister exchanged views on the developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and the tensions that Turkey is causing in its relations with its wider neighborhood.

On Tuesday, the Tripartite Greece-Cyprus-Israel will take place in Athens. The meeting, which will be attended by Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and his counterparts Nikos Christodoulidis and Gabi Ashkenazi, is expected to focus on the latest developments in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East, and the wider region.
