Netanyahu to Greek FM: Your visit during crisis, shows will to strengthen Israel ties

Before a meeting in Jerusalem with visiting Greek foreign Minister Nikos Kostias on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he appreciated that the foreign minister went ahead with a three-day trip to Israel, his first visit to Israel since assuming his role in January, “despite some rather dramatic events in your country.”

What this demonstrates, Netanyahu said, “was the real commitment we have to strengthen the friendship between our two countries.” That relationship has dramatically improved over the past five years.

Kotzias told Netanyahu that when he sees Israelis visiting Greece, he is struck that they “love Greece so much. We have to love Israel the same way,” he said.
