Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with visiting Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias Monday one day after the Greek public voted to back the government in rejecting the euro zone's austerity terms of a bailout.

"It is my pleasure to host you in Jerusalem. You are coming here at a critical time for Greece and I appreciate the fact that you came despite dramatic events taking place in your country," Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu said Kotzias' visit demonstrates the true commitment that Israel and Greece have to strengthen their relationship.
