Greece interested in developing cooperation with Black Sea region of Ukraine
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said that Athens is interested in developing cooperation with the Black Sea region of Ukraine.
"Greece is extremely interested in development of cooperation with the Black Sea region of Ukraine due to historical links of Greece with these regions, in particular, in cultural and economic aspects. And we are very keen to develop closer links with the Black Sea regions," the prime minister of Greece told after a meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman in Kyiv on Wednesday evening.
According to Tsipras, the two countries have historical ties. About 100,000 ethnic Greeks live in Ukraine, and Greece is interested in their safety, keeping in mind that some of them are living in the conflict zone in Donbas.
