Bilateral Relations and Migration Dominate Greek-Croatian PMs Meeting

September 17, 2021

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Friday met with Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenković, on the margins of the 8th EU Med Summit, which is being organised in Athens.

In his statements before the start of the meeting, the Greek prime minister expressed his gratitude to his Croatian counterpart for Croatia's immediate response to Greece's request for assistance during the summer fires, something that "highlights the need for even stronger cooperation through the RescEU mechanism," as he said.

Mitsotakis also expressed Athens' support for Zagreb's further integration into the institutions of the European Union.

On his part, the Croatian prime minister expressed his gratitude to Greece for the assistance it offered to Croatia when it was hit by an earthquake last December, while estimating that the participation of his country and Slovenia in the EU Med Summit will allow a better understanding, not only of the global and Mediterranean issues, but also of the political and security challenges "we all face".

According to government sources, during their meeting, the two leaders reaffirmed the excellent level of bilateral relations, discussed issues of common interest and the prospects for deepening cooperation at the bilateral and regional levels, with emphasis on the economic sector.

The same sources said that the two prime ministers also had the opportunity to exchange views on issues related to the European Union, such as the Conference on the Future of Europe and Migration, in the light of recent developments in Afghanistan.

Mitsotakis and Plenković underlined their commitment to promoting the European perspective of the Western Balkans and maintaining security and stability in the wider Southeastern Mediterranean region.
