The prospects for strengthening bilateral cooperation between their two countries in investments and tourism were discussed on Tuesday during a meeting between Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the Crown Prince and Prime Minister of Bahrain, Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
The meeting was held on the margins of Mitsotakis’ official visit to Saudi Arabia.
The two leaders also exchanged views on international and regional issues, as well as the latest developments in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Mitsotakis referred to Greece’s strategic partnership agreement for defence and security cooperation with France, as well the five-year extension of the Greek-US Mutual Defense and Cooperation Agreement.
The two leaders each invited the other to visit their respective country.
Earlier, Mitsotakis met with entrepreneurs from Saudi Arabia who would like to invest in Greece and also had meetings with representatives of Greek companies that either operate or would like to operate in Saudi Arabia.
Afterwards, he met with three air force officers who are serving as liaisons for the transfer and installation of Patriot missiles that Greece has offered to Saudi Arabia to strengthen its defence.
Deputy Foreign Minister responsible for Economic Diplomacy and Openness Kostas Fragogiannis, the head of prime minister’s diplomatic office Ambassador Eleni Sourani, the head of the prime minister’s economic office Alexis Patelis and alternate government spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni attended the meeting.
