Greek defense minister went to Paris to discuss with his French counterpart and sign declaration of intent between the two countries to move ahead.

“We discussed equipment issues regarding the supply of two Frigates by the Greek Navy. We have signed a declaration of intent between the two countries to move the process forward”, Greek Defense Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos said in Paris, announcing the official opening of negotiations on the purchase of two [email protected] frigates.

The French are requesting that the contract be completed by the end of January 2020, and today’s signing of LOI between Nikos Panagiotopoulos and Florence Parley is part of an ambitious effort to speed up the process so that the deal is closed within the next 100 days.
