The PM's lobbying efforts on behalf of the Greek economy show the blooming Israeli-Greek ties in wake of deteriorating relations with Turkey.
Greece, hoping that a new, multi-billion dollar economic-rescue plan will be approved by the EU and the International Monetary Fund, has found a surprising new advocate: Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
For the second day in a row, Netanyahu spoke out Thursday during a high-level diplomatic meeting on behalf of economic assistance to Greece. According to Netanyahu’s office, the Prime Minister, during his meeting with visiting French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe, called on the EU countries to help Greece in its necessary economic-recovery plan.
