Meeting Between Greek PM and US President in New York “Very Likely”



A Greek government spokesman said on Monday that a meeting between Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and US President Donald Trump in parallel with the UN General Assembly in New York at the end of the month is “very likely.”

Speaking to Skai TV, Stelios Petsas said that the details for such a meeting are currently under discussion, but no date has been set as of yet.

PM Mitsotakis is expected to meet with several heads of state in New York concurrently with  the September 17-30 assembly, including Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Petsas said that Athens plans to use this opportunity to discuss Turkey’s increasingly aggressive attitude in the Aegean Sea and Eastern Mediterranean, particularly with regard to its energy plans off the coast of Cyprus.
