Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias held talks on Thursday with Speaker of Libya’s House of Representatives, Aguila Saleh, announced Greece’s Foreign Ministry.
The meeting comes at the conclusion of Dendias’ visit to eastern Libya, which was marred by a diplomatic dispute with the Tripoli-based Government of National Unity over the Greek top diplomat’s refusal to meet with his Libyan counterpart Najla Mangouh.
During his meeting with Saleh, Dendias expressed Greece’s “satisfaction” for the Libyan parliament’s condemnation of the Turkey-Libya maritime deal, which was signed by the Libyan government in 2019 without ratification or approval from the country’s parliament.
“Constructive discussion on parliamentary issues and bilateral relations,” the Greek Foreign Ministry said of the talks between both officials.
