The International Relations Department of University of Laval, Quebec, organized a lecture over the Greek-Israeli relations issue. The event was led by the Consul General of Greece in Montreal, Thanos Kafopoulos and Israeli Consul General Joel Lion.
Before an audience of students and professors, two representatives highlighted the importance of Greek-Israeli cooperation and it must be across the board on all levels, and due to the geographical proximity of Greece to Israel, the similar values and cultures can only aid in cementing a deep and long-lasting relationship.
Kafopoulos said that Cyprus is an important link especially to the sector of energy. Oil holdings in South Cyprus, with Israel’s support, will offer various alternatives of the energy supply around Greece and European Union, he said. Lion said that co-operation between the countries is deep and lasting.
