Potential regional cooperation schemes after the normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates was discussed by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and visiting Israeli Foreign Affairs Minister Gabi Ashkenazi at Maximos Mansion on Monday.
The Greek premier also told Ashkenazi that Greece has always dealt with Turkey’s regional provocative actions as an issue that supersedes national Greek borders, and which concerns vital matters of European significance. They reportedly both agreed on dangerous use of religion as a tool by the Turkish leadership in its confrontation with the West.
At the meeting, which was also attended by Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias, among others, they also discussed managing the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic and exchanged views on best practices.
Gabi Ashkenazi will participate in the Greece-Cyprus-Israel trilateral meeting in Athens on Tuesday.
