Earlier on Monday, Dendias had a meeting with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis ahead of his imminent visits, the same announcement said.

Greece as pillar of stability and champion of promoting security and prosperity in the wider region is actively involved in the diplomatic developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, diplomatic sources said on Monday.

In this context, they reported that Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias will be having a series of meetings with his counterparts in the region and will be the first EU member-state foreign minister to visit Israel and Palestinian Territories since the start of the crisis.

Finally, they underlined that the meeting with the Patriarch of Jerusalem indicates Greece's justifiable interest in the protection of the Holy Pilgrimages and preservation of their status.


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis addressing the new Cabinet at a meeting held in the Maximos Mansion on Saturday, said that he chose this first meeting after the elections to coincide with the government reshuffle "in order to send an overall message of dynamic restart because June 9 was a landmark in our up to date course but also a new start for the next three years of our term" .
