    [02] FM meets with US envoy ahead of talks with Hillary Clinton in NY

    ANA-MPA/Foreign minister Dora Bakoyannis met on Wednesday with US ambassador in Athens Daniel Speckhard.

    Speckhard told reporters afterwards that the meeting was in preparation of Bakoyannis' upcoming talks with her US counterpart, secretary of state Hillary Clinton, both of whom will be in New York for the United Nations General Assembly.

    Bakoyannis' meeting with the US envoy, held at the latter's request, also focused on the OSCE (Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe) summit at foreign ministers' level, which will be held towards the end of the year, marking the end of the Greek chairmanship of the OSCE.

    The two sides also discussed economic issues, ahead of the convening in autumn of the Greece-US bilateral economic cooperation committee aimed at enhancing bilateral economic relations.

    Speckhard said his meeting with Bakoyannis had been a routine diplomatic meeting, for the purpose of enhancing economic and diplomatic relations between the two countries.

    Bakoyannis is due to arrive in New York on Sunday, September 27, for the annual UN General Assembly, and will address the plenary the following morning.

    On the afternoon of her arrival, Bakoyannis will meet with UN special mediator on the FYROM name issue, Matthew Nimetz.

    After addressing the General Assembly plenary on Monday, Bakoyannis will have separate talks with her US and Russian counterparts, secretary of state Hillary Clinton and foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, respectively, and with UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon.
