French PM Valls to visit Greece on June 2-3
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls will pay an official visit to Greece on June 2-3 with the view to boost the bilateral relations of the two countries.
Valls will be accompanied by Finance Minister Michel Sapin and Deputy Minister for European Affairs Harlem Desir.
“The visit, which takes place only a few days after the European Union decided to provide further financial assistance to Greece will be an opportunity to express France’s support to Greek reforms and the consolidation of Greece’s position in the eurozone,” according to a statement of the French embassy in Athens.
The discussions will be an “opportunity to draw new perspectives on the bilateral relations between France and Greece”, while the two prime ministers will sign a “roadmap” on the strategic partnership between the two states.
The French Prime Minister is expected to have an extended discussion of the migrant and refugee issue and assist Greece in its effort to handle the large refugee flows.
Valls will meet with Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
