Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Friday said he’ll officially visit the newly christened North Macedonia in the coming months, a visit that would be the first by Greek head of government since the country declared its independence in 1991.

Speaking at the 4th Delphi economic forum at the eponymous location, Tsipras promised to lead a delegation of Greek business people and investors to the neighboring country.

“Greece is determined to continue to build on all that we achieved in the Prespa agreement,” he said, while also promising that a high-level bilateral council will be convened. He cited an emphasis on significantly boosting bilateral trade, economic exchanges, tourism, energy cooperation, and even military and law enforcement ties.

“Greece and North Macedonia are no longer two sides of an unsolved puzzle for the international community, but two neighboring states who invested in friendship, cooperation and solidarity, and who provide an example, not only in the Balkans but for Europe, and for a better world,” he said.

Speaking at the forum, he also expressed satisfaction over this week’s announcement of a major natgas deposit being found in Cyprus’ EEZ.
