His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, received Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the Prime Minister of Greece, on Wednesday.

During the meeting, which took place at Al Shati Palace in Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohamed welcomed Mitsotakis and his delegation, and both sides discussed the relations between the UAE and Greece and ways of developing and consolidating their joint interests in all areas, in addition to several regional and international issues of mutual concern.

They also highlighted multiple areas of cooperation between the UAE and Greece and promising development opportunities, most notably in the areas of investment, commerce, politics, culture and defence. Thereafter, they discussed the coronavirus pandemic and the efforts of the international community to contain its humanitarian and economic repercussions.

Sheikh Mohamed and Mitsotakis exchanged their opinions on regional and international issues that concern both countries, most notably the developments in the East Mediterranean.

Both sides affirmed the distinguished relations between their countries, which are based on a strong political will and their ongoing cooperation while agreeing on many topics related to finding peaceful resolutions to the conflicts and crises witnessed by the region, and driving their diplomatic efforts to achieve the aspirations of their peoples for peace, prosperity and development, as well as for security and stability in the region and the rest of the world.

Sheikh Mohamed stated that promoting dialogue, peaceful actions, respect for the sovereignty of countries and not interfering in their internal affairs is the correct way to resolve disputes in the region, noting that the UAE is always working to establish peace.

The UAE is closely monitoring the developments in the East Mediterranean, given its importance to regional and international stability and peace, he added, stressing that terrorism is the most serious threat to international peace and development, and noting that the UAE is supporting tolerance and coexistence and denouncing the exploitation of religious slogans to promote hate speech.
