Cooperative energy transfer from the Eastern Mediterranean to Europe is a top objective, Dendias stated during a news conference.

On relations with Turkey, he claimed that things had improved after Greece showed solidarity and support in the wake of the tragic earthquakes that struck the country on February 6.

“I wish this positive climate will lead to negotiations on essential issues such as demarcation of an exclusive economic zone and the continental shelf in line with international law and maritime law,” said Dendias.
