“The challenges are many but we have common interests which help us see the chances and avoid the dangers. We have to find a way to cooperate, maintain world peace and destroy terrorism” said Netanyahu noting that there is a cultural consensus between Greece and Israel.
The Israeli Prime Minister also talked about the Greek economy, noting that, he recognizes the large efforts Greece is making. “These efforts are very big, but I believe the economy will recover” said Netanyahu and he added that “we have a good and constantly developing cooperation with Greece”.
The Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras thanked Netanyahu for his kind words and his hospitality. As he mentioned “it is known that over the past years there has been a strengthening in the relationships between the two countries” but he noted that “this doesn’t mean that there aren’t sectors where we have to focus more”.
