Bilateral relations between Greece and Egypt have reached "an unprecedented high level," said Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias, at an event organized by the Embassy of Egypt in Greece on Friday, on occasion of the National Day of Egypt, it was reported on Saturday.
"We have done plenty in the last three years," he added, and "that has a lot to do with a common vision of the people, and less with politicians."
Two years ago, he added, "we signed our bilateral agreement for the delimitation of our maritime zones, after almost thirty years of negotiations."
This was "an agreement based on the International Law of the Sea, UNCLOS, and we have cooperated very closely, in the fields of defense, economy, investment, tourism and energy."
Furthermore, "we have managed to promote our trilateral format of cooperation with the Republic of Cyprus."
Dendias also praised the fact that "we have signed the agreement for the electrical interconnection between us, again a very proud moment in our relations."
