Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at talks with Foreign Minister of the Hellenic Republic Nikos Dendias, Moscow, November 6, 2019
Welcome to the Foreign Ministry of Russia. Our relations, which have a long history, are very intensive and are developing consistently in all spheres, from the economy to humanitarian cooperation.
When your Government assumed office in May of this year, this created new opportunities to discuss the entire range of our relations and to coordinate their further development.
Mr Minister, we are grateful to you for accepting our invitation to visit Russia. Our meeting today is a good opportunity to discuss not only bilateral relations, but also to exchange views on the developments in Europe and the Mediterranean, as well as global politics in general.
Once again, welcome to Moscow.
