Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shukri were holding extended talks in Cairo on Thursday over the demarcation of maritime zones, developments in Libya and the broader eastern Mediterranean issues.

Earlier, Dendias was received by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

In an op-ed in Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper on the occasion of his visit to Cairo, Dendias expressed hope that the two countries would push forward with a deal on maritime zones.

He also warned that Turkey’s “expansionist and revisionist policy” undermines regional security and stability and peace in Libya, and “manipulate the Arab world according to its own hegemonic aspirations.”
