The Prime Minister of Greece has landed in the UAE for the start of a two-day working visit.
Kyriakos Mitsotakis was greeted by Dr Sultan Al Jaber, Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology, and a number of senior officials, at the Presidential Airport in Abu Dhabi.
His arrival comes after the UAE and Greece agreed to strengthen relations in energy, science and technology and food security at a meeting in Athens in September.
Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, met Mr Mitsotakis to discuss relations and review the latest international developments.
