The European Union attained a provisional deal on Thursday on Covid-19 certificates designed to open up tourism across the 27-nation bloc this summer.

European Parliament lawmakers and current EU president Portugal representing the bloc’s 27 members sealed the agreement after the fourth round of negotiations on Thursday afternoon.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis tweeted.

"Today’s provisional agreement on the EU Digital COVID-19 Certificate is an extremely positive development. Greece has been a strong advocate for it from the outset, as it will facilitate the freedom of movement within the EU and contribute to the efforts for economic recovery."
