Greece Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has landed in Delhi, India at the invitation of Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, for bilateral talks.

Mitsotakis will be the Chief Guest and Keynote Speaker at the 9th Raisina Dialogue, 2024 in New Delhi and will also visit Mumbai before returning to Athens.

He will be accorded a ceremonial welcome at the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhawan with Prime Minister Modi set to also host a lunch banquet in honour of the Greek PM.

India-Greece relations have been elevated to ‘Strategic Partnership’ during PM Modi’s visit to Greece in August 2023. They are based on shared cultural values, commitment to foster economic growth, collaboration in the fields of security and defence, shipping, maritime and marked by convergence on regional and global issues. The two countries have also been cooperating closely in various multilateral forums.

This would be the first bilateral Head of State/Government level visit from Greece to India after 15 years; the last Prime Ministerial visit from Greece to India took place in 2008. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi visited Athens on 25 August 2023.

Prime Minister Mitsotakis's visit is expected to further strengthen and deepen the strategic partnership between India and Greece.
