FM Dendias Hosts Lunch for Outgoing Israeli Ambassador Amrani

ATHENS – Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias held a farewell lunch for outgoing Israeli Ambassador to Greece Yossi Amrani on Wednesday.

The Ambassadors of Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Austria attended the lunch.

In his address, the minister referred to the strategic dimension of the Greece-Israel relationship as well as to the achievements made over the last three years, which further strengthened the ties between the two countries, according to diplomatic sources.

After referring to the excellent and sincere cooperation he had with Amrani, the Greek foreign minister stressed that during his term, from 2019 until today, a lot has been achieved:

– Greece and Israel signed the agreement for the construction of East-Med as well as the agreement for the creation of the International Flight Training Center in Kalamata.

– Greece took over the annual (2021) presidency of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.

Through its presidency, Greece had the opportunity to send again the message that the crimes of the Holocaust committed during World War II will not be forgotten or repeated.

– Greece and Israel, together with Cyprus, emerged as poles of stability and cooperation. The result of the cooperation was the 3 + 1 scheme, in which the USA was also included.

In addition, the foreign minister stated that he is convinced that the bonds of sincere friendship and close cooperation, which have been forged with Israel in recent years, will continue to be strengthened for the benefit of both peoples.
