Greece has and Embassy in Beirut, and Lebanon has an Embassy in Athens.

Political Relations

Our country’s relations with Lebanon are very friendly and are governed by mutual respect and trust, given that, beyond historical reasons, Greece hosted 30,000 Lebanese refugees during the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990). Our country’s firm policy is in support of the independence, security and stability of Lebanon.

In the political and diplomatic sector, there is excellent cooperation, while in international organizations there is mutual support for candidacies. Of particular note is the official visit Lebanese President General Michel Sleiman carried out to Greece in December 2012. Greece actively stood by Lebanon during the war of 2006, responding immediately to the request for the provision of humanitarian aid, and continues to contribute to the reconstruction of the country on an economic and political level, funding a number of development programmes and other projects. Greece also supports the work of the international Special Tribunal for Lebanon – which was set up to investigate the assassination of Lebanese former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri – and the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), in which Greece participates.

Greece participated in the June 2014 Rome Conference on support to Lebanese Armed Forces. Responding positively to the request for support, and attaching particular importance to the military training sector, Greece is providing access to its Tertiary Military Training Institutions and to Training Centers, such as the Multinational Peace Support Operations Training Center, in Kilkis, and the Maritime Interdiction Operational Training Center, in Crete.

Moreover, Greece’s firm position in favor of a just, comprehensive and permanent solution of the Middle East problem, which is a major issue in Lebanese foreign policy, contributes to the maintaining of the friendly relations between the two countries.

The Greek community in Lebanon numbers some 4,000 persons, while some 2,000 persons of Lebanese descent, who are naturalized Greeks, live in our country. In Beirut there is a Greek community and a Greek Club, while there is also a Greek Club in Tripoli.
