ATHENS — The Foreign Minister of Lebanon Charbel Wehbe characterised Greece an important partner adding that there are prospects for the further deepening of the already very good bilateral relations, especially in the sector of economy, in an interview with Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Sunday.

Especially on his meeting with Dendias, he said that it was held "on a very friendly basis" noting that Greece and Lebanon share the same views. "We have the same values, the same history. We and Greece are building a strong relation and I hope that we will deepen it even more in the future, particularly regarding the economic cooperation".

He also underlined that both Greece and Cyprus are the countries that are closer to Lebanon among the other EU countries, as they are aware of the Mediterranean attitude and what means stability and safety in the region of eastern Mediterranean.
