It was announced that Greece will open an embassy in Panama City following the meeting between Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias and his Panamanian counterpart Janaina Tewaney Mencomo in Panama City on Friday.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the two ministers on cooperation in the field of Diplomatic Training, Dendias tweeted.

Talks focused on fostering close cooperation between the two countries in several areas including shipping, trade, investments and within International Organisations, he added, as well as on the Our Ocean Conference 2023 in Panama and in 2024 in Greece.

The formal approval of the request to establish a Greek Embassy in Panama was announced, Dendias added in another tweet, with "Greek diaspora in Panama acting like a bridge between the two countries," he noted.

The Greek foreign minister also met with members of Greek diaspora and of Panama's ecclesiastical community.

Panama was his fifth stop in a five-day tour of Latin American countries after Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay.

The Greek minister will wrap-up his tour with a visit to Jamaica.
