MUNICH – Amid the sensitive and critical geopolitical situation due to the developments in Ukraine, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is expected, according to government sources, to have a series of important diplomatic contacts on the margins of the 58th Munich Security Conference on Friday.

The prime minister will also meet with the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence of Israel, Benjamin Gantz. Greek Defence Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos will also participate in the meeting. According to the same sources, the excellent level of bilateral relations will be confirmed, while the discussion will focus on both international developments and Turkey’s ongoing aggressive rhetoric.
