Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ visit to Israel was symbolic as well as substantial in terms of content.

The common goal of securing peace in the Eastern Mediterranean was stressed during the talks the Greek PM had with his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu, with Mr. Mitsotakis referring to Turkey’s destabilizing role both via provocative actions on the Greek border and with the memorandum with Libya.

During the two men’s private meeting, the course of EastMed and the possibility of investment was also discussed, while there was a signing of bilateral agreements in tourism, cybersecurity and agriculture.

Today, the Greek Prime Minister will hold talks with Foreign Minister Gaby Ashkenazi and the Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

Mr. Mitsotakis will then visit the Holocaust Memorial where he will lay a wreath.
