Greek-Iranian relations are foreign relations between Greece and Iran. The two countries have had relations for millennia, and share great historical and cultural ties. Greece has an Embassy in Tehran, and Iran is represented by its Embassy in Athens.
Relations between the two people date back from the antiquity and well before the Persian invasion of Greece. There is also the report of Strabo of an Athenian delegation to Persia in 432 BC. The relations have evolved from sworn rivalry during the Greco-Persian wars to strong cordiality, since Alexander the Great defeated the Persian Empire. Alexander admired Persian culture, and wanted to create a mixture of Greek and Persian culture which would forever bind and commemorate the two peoples. This legacy of strong cordiality would thus be found back for many more centuries in various parts of the world named as the Greco-Persian culture. A harmonious blend of both Greek and Persian cultural aspects. The Kingdom of Pontus was a prime example of an entity (in Asia Minor) where Iranian and Greek culture, ethnicity, idendity, amongst others, mingled.
