Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas on Friday attended a reception with ambassadors of Arab League member-states in Athens, hosted by the Lebanese ambassador at his residence.

The foreign minister announced that he has addressed a letter to Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa requesting that Greece’s ambassador to Cairo be accredited to the organisation, a move described as tangible proof of Athens' strong interest in forging closer relations with the Arab world.

A special reference was made to the economy and the economic relations with the Arab countries.

The discussion with the Arab ambassadors focused on all regional issues and recent developments in the wider Middle East region, Lebanon and Tunisia. On the Palestinian issue, Droutsas reiterated Athens' firm position in favour of a two-state solution that will co-exist in an environment of peace and security.
