October 25, 2021

ΑΤΗΕΝS — Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias will meet with British Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, Elizabeth Truss, in London on Monday.

The aforementioned talks will focus on further strengthening bilateral cooperation between Greece and the United Kingdom in areas of common interest.

During the visit, the signing of a “Memorandum of Understanding on a Bilateral Strategic Framework between the Hellenic Republic and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland” has also been scheduled.

In addition, as part of the strengthening of Parliamentary cooperation between the two countries, the Minister of Foreign Affairs will hold meetings with the UK Parliament Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Tom Tugendhat and the Chair of the Defence Committee, Tobias Ellwood.

During his stay in London, the Minister of Foreign Affairs will address the Royal United Services Institute with a speech titled “Enhancing Security and Stability in Europe and the Mediterranean”.

The Minister’s visit to London is the second one within a few months, a fact which underlines the special importance that Greece attaches to the strengthening of traditional ties with the United Kingdom in the post-Brexit era.
