  • [01] President Papoulias meets Pope Benedict

    Greece's president of the republic, Karolos Papoulias, on Saturday met Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican following a five-day official visit to Italy.

    The two officials exchanged greetings in German and withdrew to the smiling pontiff's office for a 15-minute meeting, later to be joined by ministers accompanying the president.

    Benedict awarded Papoulias the Vatican's highest medal, receiving from his visitor a silver tray portraying Christ and the disciples.

    Accompanying the head of state were Education Minister Marieta Yiannakou, Macedonia-Thrace Minister Nikos Tsiartsionis, Deputy Foreign Minister Panayiotis Skandalakis, and Deputy Culture Minister Petros Tatoulis.

    President Papoulias also met the prime minister of the Vatican, Cardinal Angelo Sontano.
