Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias’ statements to journalists following his meeting with the Foreign Ministers of Egypt, Sameh Shoukry, and the Republic of Cyprus I. Kasoulides, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly (New York, 20.09.2022)

As is well known, the Mitsotakis Government is promoting an ambitious plan to turn Greece into an energy hub, and through its interconnection with Egypt, to be able to provide the European market with capabilities for addressing the energy balance crisis caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
In this regard, all the problems in the region were discussed. As is well known, we have a cordial understanding and share identical views on a number of problems and situations with Egypt, and we regard in the same way Turkey’s aggressive conduct and its disregard for UNCLOS and its implementation in the Eastern Mediterranean.
We also had the opportunity to discuss energy, Greece’s interconnection with Egypt, and Egypt’s role in the EU’s energy security.
We had a very interesting meeting today with the Foreign Minister of Egypt, Sameh Shoukry, followed by a trilateral meeting between Greece, Egypt, and the Republic of Cyprus, with Ioannis Kasoulides.
