Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias met with acting British Foreign Minister Chris Heaton-Harris in London on Monday.

According to diplomatic sources, the meeting of the two ministers was held in a very cordial climate. They discussed developments in the southeastern Mediterranean region, Greek-Turkish relations, the UK-EU relations and the crisis in Ukraine, with Dendias noting the importance of keeping communication channels open with Moscow.

The MoU includes a wide range of issues including defense, trade, tourism, and shipping.

In these meetings, the Greek minister promoted Greece's candidacy for election as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2025-26.
