  • [01] Papoulias-Erdogan meeting in UAE

    (ABU DHABI) -- President of Republic Karolos Papoulias met here on Monday with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Ergodan, on the sidelines of the World Future Energy Summit.

    Both Papoulias and Erdogan are keynote speakers at the summit.

    The two leaders held a private 40-minute meeting and exchanged views, while Papoulias informed the Turkish premier that an answer to his letter -- towards his Greek counterpart, Prime Minister George Papandreou -- will be forthcoming in the next few days.

    Ergodan also expressed a desire to visit Athens in the near future.

    Papoulias departed for Abu Dhabi on Sunday as the guest of United Arab Emirates President Khalifa bin Zayid al-Nuhayyan.

    During his stay in the UAE, Papoulias will have meetings with the president and his successor, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayid al-Nuhayyan.

    The World Future Energy Summit is taking place under the aegis of the crown prince.

    He will also have a meeting with Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed, another speaker at the summit, and tour the Sheikh Zayed mosque in the city.
