Athens: Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Greece to hold bilateral talks with his counterpart Kyriakos Mitsotakis to further deepen the relationship between the two nations.

He is also expected to meet President Katerina Sakellaropoulou.

Modi is visiting Greece at the invitation of his Greek counterpart, Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

This will be the first visit by an Indian Prime Minister to Greece in 40 years.

Modi arrived in the Greek capital from South Africa this morning, where he attended the 15th BRICS Summit and held bilateral meetings with several world leaders to further cement India’s relations with those countries.

After his arrival, members of the Indian diaspora accorded a warm welcome to PM Modi outside the hotel in Athens where he will stay during his one-day official visit.

Later in the day, PM Modi will receive a ceremonial reception upon his arrival. He will also visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where he will lay a wreath.

PM Modi will interact with business leaders from both countries as well as with the Indian community in Greece.

The External Affairs Ministry said India and Greece enjoy civilizational ties, which have strengthened in recent years through cooperation in areas like maritime transport, defence, trade and investments, and people-to-people ties.
