Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, will travel tomorrow, Monday, October 25, to the United Kingdom where he is expected to meet with the British Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, Elizabeth Truss. The Minister will also meet with the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Minister for Europe and Americas), Wendy Morton.
The aforementioned talks will focus on further strengthening bilateral cooperation between Greece and the United Kingdom in areas of common interest.
During the visit, the signing of a “Memorandum of Understanding on a Bilateral Strategic Framework between the Hellenic Republic and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland” has also being scheduled.
In addition, as part of the strengthening of Parliamentary cooperation between the two countries, the Minister of Foreign Affairs will hold meetings with the UK Parliament Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Tom Tugendhat and the Chair of the Defence Committee, Tobias Ellwood.
During his stay in London, the Minister of Foreign Affairs will address the Royal United Services Institute with a speech titled “Enhancing Security and Stability in Europe and the Mediterranean”.
The Minister’s visit to London is the second one within a few months, a fact which underlines the special importance that Greece attaches to the strengthening of traditional ties with the United Kingdom in the post-Brexit era.
