Upon his arrival in Tripoli, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met with the Prime Minister of Italy, Mario Draghi, as they are among the first leaders from the European Union to visit Libya, a mere hours apart from one another.
The two Prime Ministers exchanged views on the situation in Libya and the need for the EU and its member states to support the efforts for reconstruction, stabilization and for holding elections in Libya. Greece and Italy, the two EU countries in closest proximity to Libya- could play a role, both at a bilateral level as well as within the EU framework.
The two leaders also had the chance to discuss the excellent Greco-Italian relations, evidenced by the agreement on the delimitation of maritime zones, which serves as a model for the implementation of International Law, international legality and cooperation between littoral countries in the region.
They also discussed coordination between Greece and Italy on EU matters, particularly migration and the Recovery Fund.
