Mitsotakis, von der Leyen Reschedule Meeting for Saturday

September 29, 2022

BRUSSELS – European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, who cancelled a dinner with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Thursday evening, will be meeting with the premier in Sofia on Saturday, European Commission Chief Spokesperson Eric Mamer said in a tweet.

The two officials “replaced their planned dinner this evening in Athens with a meeting in Sofia on Saturday, in the margins of the inauguration of the gas interconnector between Bulgaria and Greece – IGB,” Mamer said.

Von der Leyen was in Athens to deliver a keynote speech at the Athens Democracy Forum, and left for Brussels shortly after, “following the cancellation of the MED9 summit tomorrow in Alicante,” the spokesman noted.
