  • [01] Athens mayor meets with US ambassador

  • [01] Athens mayor meets with US ambassador

    New Athens Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis received US ambassador to Greece Charles Ries on Tuesday, who paid a courtesy visit to Athens' town hall on the occasion of Kaklamanis' assumption of the post.

    Kaklamanis, the former health minister, noted afterwards that the US ambassador expressed a willingness to assist in efforts at improving Athens' overall image and quality of life.

    The Athens mayor has already met with his counterparts from Chicago and Nashville, while a request has been made for a meeting with the mayor of Los Angeles. Both Chicago and Los Angeles are bidding for the hosting of the 2016 Olympic Games.

    Meanwhile, in a related development, groups of protesters affiliated with the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) demonstrated outside city hall during Ries' visit, while riot police were called in to keep the protesters at bay.
