ATHENS, October 25 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and Greece will deepen bilateral political and economic relations, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov and Greek Foreign Minister Stavros Lambrinidis said in Athens on Tuesday.
Russia is interested in making investments in Greece and Cyprus, Titov said, noting that options for intensifying the economic cooperation were abundant.
The Athens News Agency reported that Titov and Lambrinidis discussed the upcoming meeting of the Russian-Greek Intergovernmental Economic Cooperation Commission due in Athens in mid-December and the Russian interest in investments in Greece and the Greek market possibilities. They also discussed preparations for the Athens visit of Russian Presidential Representative for Security Issues Dmitry Rogozin and the Years of Russia and Greece due in 2014, the agency said.
It also said that Titov and Lambrinidis discussed regional problems and the situation in the Balkans and the Mediterranean region. “The Greek side thanked Russia for its firm position in the Cypriot survey of hydrocarbons on the sea shelf in the Cypriot exclusive economic zone,” the agency said.
Lambrinidis will visit Russia in the middle of December to take part in a meeting of foreign ministers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization.
