KIS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE 30th ANNIVERSARY OF THE RECOGNITION OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL BY GREECE Print E-mail
Friday, 22 May 2020 07:59
The 30th anniversary of the official recognition of the State of Israel by Greece mark the horizons of a dynamic and productive cooperation of the two countries aiming at the progress and the prosperity of the two peoples.

Political cooperation spearheaded by Konstantinos Mitsotakis in 1990, with his decision to recognize de jure the State of Israel, was fostered and developed by the governments of the two countries in the fields of economy, security, health and education, energy, culture and tourism.

Athens and Jerusalem, two capitals, two cities with a historic heritage that has defined the nature of humanism and democracy, have joined forces and keep making common efforts to safeguard stability and peaceful coexistence amongst all the people in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Greeks and Israelis professed solidarity on the field and proved the very meaning of solidarity by saving lives, by saving the natural resources of their countries. Greek and Israeli firefighters did it selflessly and with self-sacrifice during wildfires; Israeli rescuers did it during the catastrophic earthquake of Athens.

The Israelis sing Greek songs and listen Greek music, the Greeks welcome the Israeli tourists with the traditional Greek hospitality. This is the image of the two people forging their relations…

The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece congratulates Greece and Israel for their strong will to further enhance their bonds of friendship and encourages every effort that brings closer the people of the two countries.

THE SURPRISING DYNAMIC OF GREEK-ISRAELI TIES Print E-mail

DORA BAKOYANNIS & RAM AVIRAM

During 2019, in the good old pre-coronavirus times, more than 700,000 Israelis visited Greece. They were dining in tavernas in the Peloponnese, walking in Vikos, singing along in one of Athens’ bouzouki clubs, buying summer homes on Crete and Lefkada, or visiting Greek industrial partners. Greek and Israeli military forces were holding joint exercises. All that in the friendliest atmosphere. Neither the Israelis nor their Greek hosts realized that this phenomenon of real brotherhood was something that could not always be taken for granted. 

On May 21, 1990, Greek Prime Minister Konstantinos Mitsotakis recognized the State of Israel de jure, finally establishing full diplomatic relations between Israel and Greece. In fact, it was during his election campaign that Mitsotakis declared that his first act as prime minister would be the signing of the recognition of the State of Israel, which he later did. Through this act, he symbolically put an end to almost four decades of “lost time” in ties between the two old nations.
