“Relations between our countries have lasted for centuries. We stressed the importance of strengthening bilateral political contacts. “Russia is and will remain an integral part of European architectural security,” said Nikos Dendias. “In the field of energy, we look forward to continuing cooperation, examining bilateral trade and the possibility of increasing investment. “We have a lot to gain by working together.”
