FM Dendias in Cairo: “Greece’s foreign policy is a policy of principles”

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias had a “cordial meeting with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry” in Cairo on Monday, Dendias tweeted.

The two counterparts focused “on deepening Greek-Egyptian strategic relations and cooperation based on a common commitment to international law and the law of the sea, the situation in Ukraine, energy security and food, and on developments in the Eastern Mediterranean, Libya and the wider region,” he added.

Dendias’ visit to Cairo is part of the strategic – and rapidly growing – relationship between Greece and Egypt, the Greek ministry added in a statement.

When asked if the crisis in Ukraine leads to an adjustment of Greek foreign policy objectives in the region, Dendias said that these “are always stable and absolute objectives: stability, security, respect for the independence and territorial integrity of States”.

“A major international crisis, such as that caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, makes it necessary to review tactics several times and to examine various problems from the beginning. This is happening now, but Greek foreign policy is a principled foreign policy. We will continue to uphold and support these principles,” he noted.
