One of Abu Dhabi's iconic buildings lit up with the Greek flag on Tuesday evening to welcome Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his high-level government delegation to the United Arab Emirates.
On Wednesday, Mitsotakis will meet the Crown Prince of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. He will also meet the chairman of the Hedayah Center, an international organization for combating violent extremism, Dr Ali Rashid Al Nuaimi.
The aim of the two countries, which have come very close recently and share common geostrategic approaches in the wider Eastern Mediterranean and the Arabian Peninsula, is to turn the bilateral relationship into a strategic partnership, which will be reflected in the agreements expected to be signed.
Accompanying the Greek PM is Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias, Development Minister Adonis Georgiadis, Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Kostas Fragogiannis, the director of the Diplomatic Office of the Prime Minister, Ambassador Eleni Sourani, the PM’s Chief Economic Adviser Alexis Patelis and National Security Adviser Thanos Dokos.
