Greece wants to play a key role in encouraging peace in the Middle East and strongly supports a two-state solution, Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis said in an interview with Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram last week.

Bakoyannis was at an international aid conference to raise funds for  Gaza.

Greece is already offering 25 million euros aid to Gaza and committed to an additional $5 million euros to assist with the reconstruction of Gaza as well as food and medical aid.
