Greek Prime Minister Visits Astypalea, Tours Island’s Town

ΑΤΗΕΝS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, during a visit to the Aegean island of Astypalea on Wednesday, went on a tour of the island's main town and its historic windmills, which have been declared a heritage site. Mitsotakis was visiting Astypalea on the occasion of an investment on the island by the Volkswagen Group, which aims to turn Astypalea into the first "green and smart" island of the Mediterranean.

Mistsotakis initially visited a traditional bakery and afterwards, accompanied by the island's mayor Nikos Komnineas, he toured the area of the historic Castle, visited the famous windmills and talked with islanders that gathered to welcome him.

Later, the prime minister visited the multipurpose regional clinic of Astypalea to thank the staff for their valuable services and congratulated them for the island's vaccination drive: "We did extremely well, I saw that over 70 percent of the population have been vaccinated. Please make an effort to persuade the remaining few that have not been vaccinated yet."


NEW YORK - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in New York on Friday, in the context of his participation in the 78th UN General Assembly meeting this week.
