Sergey Lavrov Nikos Dendias Russia

On February 18, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will hold talks with Foreign Minister of the Hellenic Republic Nikos Dendias who will pay a working visit to Russia.

The ministers will discuss the implementation of the agreements reached during the talks between President of Russia Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister of Greece Kyriakos Mitsotakis (Sochi, December 8, 2021) and the telephone conversation between Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and his Greek counterpart on December 22, 2021. Primary attention will be paid to trade and investment, energy, transport, tourism and epidemiological safety of our citizens.

The ministers will conduct a detailed exchange of views on international and regional issues with emphasis on the Russian proposals on the indivisibility of security. Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov set forth Russia’s approaches on this issue in his letter to the heads of foreign ministries and departments of a number of states, including Greece, on January 28 of this year. We are looking forward to a response from our Greek partners.

Attention will be also paid to the Cyprus settlement process, the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East and North Africa, the Balkans and the South Caucasus, as well as various aspects of cooperation at multilateral platforms.
