They also discussed the very worrying situation in Sahel and the risk the instability will spread in the wider region: “Greece shares France’s worries over the Sahel and is closely monitoring developments via the new Greek Embassy in Senegal,” he said.

Dendias expressed Greece’s will to strengthen its relationship with African countries, stating that he will next week visit Gabon, to which Greece will donate vaccines.

On the developments in the western Balkans, Dendias said that “I am sorry to say that we are not very comfortable” and said that they agreed to send them a message on their European perspective”. Dendias also reiterated that he supports Albania and North Macedonia’s EU accession deliberations before the end of the year.

On the issue of Libya, Dendias thanked the French Minister for Greece’s invitation to the very successful Paris Conference .
