December 2, 2017

ATHENS – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit Greece on Dec. 7-8, making him the first sitting Turkish President to visit Greece in 65 years, following an invitation by Greek counterpart Prokopios Pavlopoulos.

Erdogan will meet Greece’s leadership -Pavlopoulos and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras – and visit Thrace.

According to government sources, it is more important than ever for Greece to utilize and expand the channels of communication with Turkey at a time when German-Turkish relations are at an all-time low and Turkish-US relations are tense due to developments in Syria.

Tsipras and Erdogan will discuss issues that affect bilateral relations, migration, regional security, EU-Turkish relations, and economic cooperation and will focus on joint projects currently underway.


ATHENS – It's not over 'til it's over and it's not over in Greece – or anywhere – the stubborn Coronavirus' Omicron subvariants making cases soar again just as tourists allowed in without having to abide by health measures are flooding the country.
