Through this move, Støre noted, the Norwegian side reconfirms its confidence in the big changes that are taking place in Greece and their results. The two ministers condemned the ongoing use of violence against demonstrators in Syria while they underlined the need for the start of a political process that would allow an exit from the crisis in Libya.
The Greek minister also briefed his counterpart on recent developments regarding the Cyprus problem and the negative statements by Turkish officials that undermine any effort towards a solution.
Lambrinidis also met with the President of the Foreign Affairs Standing Committee of the Norwegian Parliament Ine Marie Eriksen Soreide.
He will depart for Denmark on Tuesday morning.
