Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs meets the President of Tunisia, Kais Saied

Statement by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, N. Dendias, following his meeting with the President of Tunisia, Kais Saied – June 29, 2020 I had the great opportunity and the honour today to be received by the President of Tunisia and had with him a long and candid discussion on the prospects of the two countries, of Greece and Tunisia. How we can move forward,
how we can find common grounds. On how Greece, through the European Union, can help Tunisia address not only the COVID-19 crisis, in which Tunisia was extremely successful, but also on the creation of growth in the Tunisian economy and creating a better future for the Tunisian people. I also had the opportunity to discuss with his Excellency the President, the situation in Libya and the Mediterranean. I have to say that I highly appreciated the Tunisian principled position that the existence of foreign powers and foreign intervention in Libya leads to nowhere and contradicts international law and does not create a better future for the Libyan people. It is only through the departure of all foreign powers and especially Turkey from Libya, that there is an opportunity to find a Libyan-led solution to this crisis. Also, I had the opportunity to explain again my country’s principled position, Greece’s principled position, which is that the international law and the international law of the sea is the only way to resolve differences and delimit maritime areas in the Mediterranean. I also had the opportunity to transfer to his Excellency the President the invitation of the President of the Greek Republic, President Sakellaropoulou, to visit Athens. Thank you so much.
