The two leaders discussed the potential for boosting bilateral cooperation in investments and tourism, and exchanged views on international and regional issues, as well as the latest developments in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The Prime Minister made special reference to Greece’s agreement with France for the establishment of a strategic partnership, as well as the five-year renewal of the Mutual Defense and Cooperation Agreement between Greece and the United States.

On the Greek side, the meeting was attended by Deputy Foreign Minister for Economic Diplomacy and Openness Costas Fragoyiannis, the Director of the Prime Minister’s Diplomatic Bureau Eleni Sourani, Chief Economic Adviser to the Prime Minister Alexis Patelis and Deputy Government Spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni.

In the morning, the Prime Minister met with businessmen from Saudi Arabia who are interested in investing in Greece. He later met with senior executives of Greek companies that are already active in the Kingdom or wish to start operations there.

The Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis thereafter met with three officers of the Hellenic Air Force, who work as liaisons for the transport and installation of the “Patriot” battery that Greece has made available to Saudi Arabia in order to reinforce the air defences of the Kingdom.
