Greece will provide Saudi Arabia with a battery of Patriot missiles with more than 100 soldiers, according to an agreement signed in Riyadh on Tuesday.
Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias confirmed the move, which is part of an effort by Athens to forge alliances in the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
Saudi Arabia is conducting a military compaign against the Houthi rebels in the Yemen war. The Houthis recently intensified their attacks on targets in Saudi Arabia.
The project is Greece’s contribution to securing the energy sources of the West, said Dendias.
