  • [01] President Papoulias visits UAE

    Greek President Karolos Papoulias arrived in Abu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday for a two-day official visit with which he closes his "Arab" tour in the region, a tour which is incorporated in the strategic seeking of rekindling, on a political, economic and commercial level, Greece's relations with the Arab world.

    He held talks with UAE President Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan which focused on bilateral relations in all sectors as well as on major international problems, with emphasis on the situation in the broader Middle East.

    Papoulias also addressed a forum of Greek and Arab entrepreneurs, which was held in Abu Dhabi by the city's Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He said of his visit that what is desired in the economic sector, is incorporated in a strategy of peace and stability in the region.

    "For my country, economic relations are incorporated in our strategy to send together with you (the UAE and the entrepreneurs) a strong message to the international community that these relations contribute to the creation of stability and peace, solidaity and quality development in a region which particularly needs it," said the Greek president.

    The UAE president cordially welcomed Papoulias and noted that his visit to the United Arab Emirates "will contribute to the enlargement of bilateral cooperation to the already existing sectors of cooperations and in the location of new ones," adding that "I want peace and prosperity in the region and my country has common interests with Greece."

    Papoulias noted that beyond the economic sector, bilateral relations must also deepen in the political sector, "relations which are excellent."

    He reiterated this later at the forum that "Greece can constitute a centre and gateway for the businesses of the UAE towards Europe and the Balkans."
