Egyptian FM optimistic over agreement on EEZ with Greece

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry in an interview with Efimerida Ton Syntakton newspaper on Saturday, on the sidelines of the 2nd Conference on Stability and Security in the Eastern Mediterranean held in Rhodes, stressed the need for cooperation between Greece and Egypt in the energy sector.

He stressed that “it is important for all of us to broaden the fields of cooperation. And energy is a field of cooperation “, while on the demarcation of an EEZ between the two countries he noted that the talks continue and expressed the conviction that there will be an agreement.

It is important,” he added, “to build our relationship, to create a climate of security, stability and peace in the area that will pave the way for better exploitation of our common resources and the comparative advantages of each country. Of course, these will create better opportunities for employment, economic progress, and revenues.”

“We are facing the same or similar challenges, whether we are talking about politics or the economy, and if we work together we will get better conditions to meet our aspirations, but also to be protected from threats to peace and stability,” he stated.
