  • [01] PM Papandreou to visit Cairo on Sunday

    Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou announced in Brussels on Friday night that he would be travelling to Cairo on Sunday.

    Speaking to reporters at the end of a one-day special summit of EU leaders on energy, innovation and economy, Papandreou said that he would be holding meetings with Egyptian political leaders.

    The Greek premier also held telephone conversations on Friday with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and figurehead Mohamed ElBaradei.

    Papandreou underlined the special interest Greece places on Egypt, as the latter "is in our neighbourhood".

    In parallel, the Greek premier drew attention to the possible danger of an "explosion of a refugees wave towards Greece" in the case tragic events in Egypt continue.

    He said he had the opportunity to discuss on Friday developments in the north African country with Hosni Mubarak and Mohamed ElBaradei and other Egyptian personalities. He added that he also held telephone contacts with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and that he informed Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, on his Cairo visit on Sunday.

    Ashton will also visit Cairo, following Papandreouās visit, after a relevant EU summit decision.
