Focusing on the agreement with the UK ” a country which played a key role in the Greek independence, a country with which we fought side by side in two World Wars, a nuclear force and permanent member of the UN Security Council and guarantor force in Cyprus” Dendias underlined that “we are laying the foundation for the strengthening of this relation in a new framework after their withdrawal from the EU”.
