Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias is leaving for Israel and the Palestinian territories tomorrow.

The Foreign Minister will have meetings with His Holiness the Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos III, his Israeli counterpart Gabi Ashkenazi and his Palestinian counterpart Riad Al-Maliki.

Also, tomorrow, Dendias will participate in the extraordinary teleconference of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the European Union.

The teleconference, about developments in the region, will be convened by High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell.

The Foreign Minister will also travel to Jordan, where he will meet with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi.

Finally, he will go to Cairo on Thursday where he will meet with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry.

Earlier today, the Minister of Foreign Affairs met with the Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in view of his forthcoming visits.

It is recalled that in March, Dendias said “Greece maintains close and historical ties with the Palestinian people,” he said.

“We have been at your side in difficult moments, and we are a western country that gave you practical support when you did not have the international recognition and support that you have today,” Dendias added.
