Despite crisis at home, Greek FM to begin 3-day visit to Israel

Less than 24-hours after voting in Greece on a fateful referendum on whether to accept the terms of an international bailout, Greece’s Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias will arrive for talks on Monday, including a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Diplomatic officials said that despite the crisis in Greece, the Greeks are determined to go ahead with the meeting which is expected to focus on bilateral ties, the region and the diplomatic situation with the Palestinians.

In addition to meeting Netanyahu, Kotzias is scheduled to meet President Reuven Rivlin, Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz, Interior minister Silvan Shalom, and Deputy foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely. On Wednesday he is scheduled to go to Ramallah for talks with senior Palestinian officials there.
