September 16, 2020

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis late on Tuesday hosted a dinner in honour of visiting Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, who was in Athens to take part in the Economist conference.

According to government sources, the two leaders discussed the course of bilateral relations and Albania's European accession prospects, "which Greece has at all times supported, always with respect for the conditionalities imposed by the European Council."

Both prime ministers said they were satisfied with their cooperation in the context of NATO, while special reference was made to the presence of the Greek ethnic minority in Albania, which "should be a bridge of friendship and cooperation between the two peoples."

They also discussed the enhancement of bilateral economic and trade relations and expressed their satisfaction over the absolutely smooth integration of Albanian citizens residing in Greece.

Finally, they agreed to work together so that the two countries will very soon be in a position to resolve the pending issues from the past on a bilateral level and release the huge potential that a strategic relationship between them might generate.


ATHENS - The Minister of the Interior, Niki Kerameus, highlighted the postal vote for the upcoming European elections and the cooperation with local and regional governments at the thematic conference of the Union of Regions of Greece, "The Regions Facing the Challenges: Institutional Armoring - Rural Development," in Patras.
