"We noted that we actively develop political dialogue… We are united in the fact that we have a significant potential to expand cooperation in the energy sector," Lavrov said after talks with Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias.
Lavrov noted that a more detailed discussion on the development of the Russian-Greek cooperation will be held at the meeting of the relevant ministries’ representatives within the framework of the bilateral intergovernmental commission’s meeting on Thursday and Friday.
Lavrov arrived in Athens on Tuesday with a two-day visit, in a bid to strengthen bilateral contacts and international cooperation.
In October, a spokesperson for the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy told Sputnik that Athens were interested in such projects as Poseidon, an offshore Greek-Italian-Russian pipeline project to complete the natural gas corridor from Turkey to Greece, and via an offshore pipeline across the Ionian Sea to Italy.
Greek Energy Ministry also expressed support to the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, which is expected to deliver gas from Russia to Turkey and continue to a hub on the Turkish-Greek border, from where the gas could be transferred to other European countries.
