FM Dendias met with Gulf Cooperation Council sec gen al Hajraf

The examination of the implementation of the Memorandum of Cooperation between Greece and the Gulf Cooperation Council was the focus of a meeting between Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and the Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Nayef Al Hajraf on Wednesday. The pact was signed during Dendias' visit to Riyadh last April.

The Kuwaiti official's reference to further strengthening existing cooperation was of particular interest, as he said that "Greece understands its region and culture better compared to other countries (of the European Union)".

The Secretary-General of the GCC expressed particular concern about developments in Afghanistan, noting the danger of the spread of extremist ideologies in other countries in the region, such as Iraq.

On his part, Dendias referred to the strengthening of the Greek presence in the Gulf region and in this context he made special reference to the development of an array of Patriot missile systems in Saudi Arabia.
