Cyprus and Berlin will be Mitsotakis’ first trips

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis will visit Berlin during the 3d ten-day period of August, after accepting Angela Merkel’s invitation. The German Chancellor reached out this morning to the Greek Prime Minister to congratulate him on his great victory, and invited him to visit the German capitol. Mr. Mitsotakis thanked her, and in the next few days the exact time of the meeting, which will take place after August 20, when the Parliament opens, is expected to be determined.

The first trip, however, of the new Prime Minister will take place in Cyprus right after the government’s programmatic statements, which will be held during the weekend of 20-22 July. The time of the visit was finalized yesterday, after Mr. Mitsotakis’ phone conversation with the President of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades, who also congratulated him on taking up his new duties.

However, before that, Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias will visit Cyprus, while he is expected to meet with Mike Pombeo in the upcoming week as part of the Ministerial to Advance Religius Freedom./ibna
