  • [01] Enhancement of relations with Nis

    Belgrade (ANA-MPA/N. Pelpas) -- Greek ambassador to Serbia Christos Panagopoulos paid a call on the new mayor of Nis, Milos Simonovic, to discuss ways for further developing relations between Greece and the wider region of southeast Serbia.

    The two men reviewed economic relations between the two countries, including the organization of three business misssions from Greece to Nis, the signing of a protocol between the Nis Chamber of Commerce and Industry and those of Thessaloiniki, Katerini and Serres, and also the organization of a series of mutual visits by groups of businessmen.

    On the construction of the PanEuropean Corridor X that crosses Serbia, Panagopoulos stressed that Greece's interest in the project remains undiminished, adding that Athens has earmarked substantial funds under the Hellenic Plan for the Economic Reconstruction of the Balkans (HiPERB).

    Discussion also focused on cultural cooperation, with Simonovic expressing interest in the establishment in Nis of a branch of the Hellenic House of Culture that will be opened soon in Belgrade by the Hellenic Foundation for Culture, adding that the municipality of Nis would provide the necessary building premises.

    Panagopoulos also met with representatives of the local business community, chairmen of local Chambers, and with representatives of the local Greek community, while he further called on Metropolitan Irineos of Nis.

    The Greek ambassador also visited the city of Pirot, where he attended a memorial service at the Greek Military Cemetery where 353 soldiers and offices of the Third Greek Infantry Division who were killed in 1918, during World War I, are buried.
