Greece is here to offer as much help to Tunisia as is possible, Dendias added.
Greece has donated vaccines also to Albania and North Macedonia.
Aim of Dendias’ visit, the second this year, was to strengthen Greece-Tunisia relations and to discuss recent developments in the country and the wider Mediterranean region as well.
Dendias also met with Tunisian President Kais Saied.
The Greek FM said that the two countries work on the implementation of the maritime transport agreement signed during his previous visit and to convene, as soon as possible, the Bilateral Ministerial Committee, which has not met since 2016.
The Greek Prime Minister is expected to visit Tunisia in November on the occasion of the Summit Meeting of the Francophone.
