(TAP) – President Kais Saied met, Monday at Carthage Palace, with Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias.

This is the first visit by a foreign minister of the Hellenic Republic since 2008.

The two sides reviewed the prospects for bilateral cooperation, including the holding of the 11th session of the Tunisia-Greece Joint Commission and the 4th session of bilateral political consultations.

They also reviewed regional and international issues of common interest and discussed ways of triggering post-COVID-19 economic recovery.

Speaking after the meeting, the Greek minister said his country “highly appreciates Tunisia's principled position that the existence of foreign powers and foreign intervention in Libya leads to nowhere and contradicts with international law.”

He added that "Greece is in favour of the departure of all foreign powers from Libya.”

The Greek minister also said the meeting provided an opportunity to share views on several issues, such as the support that Greece could give to Tunisia within the framework of the European Union, both in the fight against coronavirus and in the revival of economic development.

Dendias also conveyed to the Head of State the invitation of the President of Greece Mrs. Ekateríni Sakellaropoúlou to make an official visit to her country.

Ten Greek companies operate in Tunisia, employing 600 managers and emplioyees with investments of 60 million dinars.
