Kyriakos Mitsotakis, president of Greece’s major opposition party, New Democracy (ND), met with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin during his official 3-day visit in Israel, Sunday. Mitsotakis said the meeting was ‘exceptionally interesting and very warm’, adding that it reaffirmed the excellent relations between the two nations. Mitsotakis dubbed Israel a strategic partner for Greece and expressed satisfaction that all recent Greek governments over the past years had adopted a policy of strengthening Greek-Israeli diplomatic ties. The two men discussed matters of economic cooperation between the countries, with Mitsotakis pointing out the prospects of Israeli investments in Greece. The leader of ND underlined that bilateral collaboration in the tourism industry had stood out with 400,000 Israeli nationals visiting Greece every year. Mitsotakis is scheduled to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday and the president of the Israeli parliament, Yuli Edelstein. He will also visit the Palestinian authorities in Ramala. Finally, Mitsotakis will pay a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum.
