ΑΤΗΕΝS – Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias and visiting Foreign Affairs Minister of Kenya Raychelle Awuor Omamo discussed issues relating to terrorism, irregular migration and the rapid economic and population growth of the African continent, in Athens on Monday.
Commenting on the two countries’ bilateral relations, Dendias pointed out that although these are excellent, they are far behind their potential dynamic, especially in the fields of economy, trade and investments.
The memorandum of cooperation between both countries’ diplomatic academies, signed by the two ministers after their meeting, “is a small first step in the right direction,” said the Greek minister, and he noted that “four more agreements are already in the works.”
Dendias also thanked his Kenyan counterpart for the public recognition of Greece’s help in tackling the coronavirus pandemic in the African country.
In reference to Europe Day (May 9), Dendias underlined that Greece fully supports the completion of economic collaboration talks between Kenya and the EU.
In a move of high symbolism, the Greek flag is flying again in Kiev on Monday, and the Greek Embassy reopened its doors in the Ukrainian capital, Dendias announced in statements after his meeting with Omamo.
Head of the Greek Embassy in Kiev as Chargé d’Affaires was appointed Manolis Androulakis, the last diplomat that left from the city of Mariupol.
The Greek minister also highlighted that Greece -via its embassy in Kiev and its consulate in Odessa- is closely standing by Ethnic Greeks and Ukrainian people.
