PM Narendra Modi arrives in Greece
He is also expected to meet President Katerina Sakellaropoulou
Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Greece to hold bilateral talks with his counterpart Kyriakos Mitsotakis to further deepen the relationship between the two nations.
He is also expected to meet President Katerina Sakellaropoulou. This is the first visit by an Indian Prime Minister to Greece in 40 years.
Mr Modi arrived in the Greek capital from South Africa this morning, where he attended the 15th BRICS Summit and held bilateral meetings with several world leaders to further cement India's relations with those countries.
After the arrival, members of the Indian diaspora accorded a warm welcome to PM Modi, outside the hotel in Athens where he will stay during his one-day official visit.
Later in the day PM Modi will receive a ceremonial reception on his arrival.
He will also visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where he will lay a wreath. Mr Modi will interact with business leaders from both countries, as well as with the Indian community in Greece.
India and Greece enjoy civilizational ties, which have strengthened in recent years through cooperation in areas like maritime transport, defence, trade and investments and people-to-people ties.
