Mitsotakis to CNN: Greece to Announce Gradual Reopening Plans in Next 48 Hrs

ATHENS — A green digital certificate on vaccination will allow EU citizens to travel more freely within Europe, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis told CNN, following a related decision by the European Commission on Wednesday.

Mitsotakis had proposed the certificate as a way of facilitating reopening borders safely during the pandemic crisis and ahead of the summer tourism season.

In the CNN interview, Mitsotakis also expressed optimism that the curve of the pandemic's third wave would flatten out and revealed that the government would announce gradual reopening plans within the next 48 hours.

In addition, he stressed the fact that the successful results of the 30-year Greek bond issue proves once again that Greece is out of an economic crisis for good.



ATHENS – Greece's answer to Turkey continuing to send F-16 fighters jets into Greek air space will be to file a demarche – a diplomatic complaint with Turkey every time although they will likely be ignored as they had been before.
