VENICE — Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias visited the Hellenic Institute for Byzantine & Post-Byzantine Studies in Venice on Thursday.

During his visit at the institute, which is under the ministry's jurisdiction, Dendias met with its president Vassilis Koukousas.

At Venice, the minister also met with newly enthroned Metropolitan of Italy & Exarch of South Europe Polykarpos.
