  • [01] PM: Greece-India cooperation of great importance

    New Delhi (ANA-MPA/S. Goutzanis) -- Greek prime minister Costas Karamanlis, shortly after his arrival in New Delhi on a three-day official visit to India, said the visit was an excellent opportunity for further development of bilateral relations and expanding cooperation between Greece and India in the political and economic sectors.

    "I place particular importance on Greece's cooperation with India, country of broad economic and political importance, with an outstanding role on the international scene," Karamanlis said, following his official reception by Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh on Friday morning.

    Karamanlis, who arrived in India on Thursday evening, said that there were many points of mutual interest, and that the two countries had exceptional cooperation in international organisations, adding that they could work jointly to further strengthen EU-India relations.

    "In recent years, our economic relations have entered a new phase, and my presence here will give new momentum to develop them further, to the benefit of both countries," the Greek premier said, adding that "we place great importance on strengthening our cooperation in the fields of education and culture."

    Following the official welcoming ceremony, Karamanlis met with India's external affairs minister Pranab Mukherjee, and was received by Indian President Pratibha Patil.

    Karamanlis, who is accompanied by foreign minister Dora Bakoyannis, minister of state and government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos, and the head of the prime minister's press office Yiannis Andrianou, is also scheduled to meet with Indian vice-president Hamid Ansari, and the head of the main opposition party.

    Karamanlis' itinerary further includes the laying of a wreath at the Gandhi Monument and a trip to Agra and the Taj Mahal, after which the prime minister's party will spend the night in Jaipur.
