The Greek and Russian foreign ministers Petros Molyviatis and Sergei Lavrov met in Moscow on Friday
The Greek and Russian foreign ministers Petros Molyviatis and Sergei Lavrov met in Moscow on Friday to discuss some issues on closer cooperation on energy matters, which ?will prove vital for Greece in particular?, as the Greek mass media said.
Sergey Lavrov took the opportunity to condemn terrorism but also to attack Western states for granting asylum to Chechen officials. He called for the ?political games? around the fight against terrorism to stop.
During the meeting the two ministers discussed such issues as the Cyprus problem and stability in the Balkans, but focused particularly on the possibility of closer links in the energy sector. Molyviatis said the subject was of ?paramount importance? as Greece seeks to build on its improved standing following the inauguration of work on the Burgas-Alexandroupolis pipeline last Sunday. Lavrov emphasized the importance of this project to Moscow as well.
