October 20, 2021

ATHENS — “Yet another important milestone for our country’s international position and for promoting our national interests was added yesterday during the 9th Trilateral Summit of Greece-Cyprus-Egypt,” government spokesperson Yiannis Economou said during a press briefing on Wednesday.

“A memorandum on the interconnection of the three countries in the transmission of electricity was signed yesterday, [as well as] a memorandum on trilateral cooperation on diaspora issues, and there was a joint political declaration, with which the three leaders adopted a clear position on regional developments and condemned Turkish provocativeness,” he added.

“As Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis stressed, our positions in all three countries are identical in their condemnation of Turkey’s provocative practices and aggressive rhetoric,” Economou pointed out.

Economou pointed out that “as everyone has realised, over the last two years there has been an active and multifaceted diplomacy which brings results.”

“The government has taken advantage of its added prestige and has seized every opportunity that is presented to enhance the country geostrategically, politically and economically. We are already reaping the fruits of our efforts. But we have not rested, nor is it over. We still have a lot to look forward to and the strengthening of Greece will continue unabated,” he added.


ATHENS - Education Minister Niki Kerameus presented the progress of the International Academic Partnership Programme at an event in Washington organised by the Ministry of Education and Science and the Institute of International Education "with the aim of highlighting and further expanding Greek-American cooperation in higher education", according to a statement on Thursday.
