Merkel to visit Greece for two days next week

10 months ago

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will visit Athens on October 28 and 29, Deputy Speaker of the Federal Government Ulrike Demmer announced on Friday.

Merkel’s visit is “an important sign of the close – and in the spirit of trust – cooperation between the two countries, including in the European context,” Demmer claimed.

He added that there are many issues of common interest, such as addressing the challenges of climate, health and migration, in which Germany and Greece are working closely together.

Merkel will have dinner with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Thursday evening. She will also meet Mitsotakis on Friday morning at the Maximos Mansion.

A joint press conference is scheduled afterward at 12:30.

During the meeting with the Greek prime minister, bilateral relations, European and international policy issues and economic cooperation will be discussed, Demmer said.

The Chancellor, on Friday, will also be received by the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou and meet with the new representatives of Civil Society.
