Di Maio: Exchange of Instruments for Delimitation of Maritime Zones a Major Success

November 8, 2021

ROME – Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, after his meeting on Monday with Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias in Rome, expressed his pleasure at Dendias’ visit to Italy: “The bilateral visits and close contacts are proving the strong friendship and fruitful cooperation between our countries, which have excellent relations and close collaboration regarding the international dossiers, starting from the European agenda”.

Di Maio said that he and Dendias discussed a series of issues, from their relations with the neighbouring southern countries, economic matters and energy issues.

“I want to start with the ceremony for the exchange of the Instruments for the Delimitation of the Maritime Zones Agreement. An act that signals the start of its effect at an international level. It is a major success for both countries and very important for cooperation in the Mediterannean, which we wish to become an example and a point of reference for the future. Only with constant and constructive dialogue between all the countries of the area, something that Italy will continue to encourage, can stability in the Eastern Mediterranean be achieved,” he said.

In other issues, Di Maio said that he reiterated to Dendias the importance of supporting the political process in Libya and the immediate withdrawal of mercenary troops and foreign fighters.
