Greek Prime Minister Krikos Mitsotakis on Monday called on his British envoy Boris Johnson to review travel restrictions on Greece, which is still on the “yellow list” in the United Kingdom.
The Greek newspaper (Catherine) reports that the call came during a bilateral meeting between Mitsodakis and Johnson before the start of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit in Brussels.
Listed countries require travelers to be isolated for 10 days upon their return to the UK yellow list and to take two booked Covit-19 tests during the isolation period.
In a statement issued by the Greek Prime Minister’s Office, Mitzotakis briefed Johnson on the progress of the epidemiological picture in Greece, saying “this will allow British tourists to lift restrictions and return to the country for the holidays” and called for unity. Kingdom “should not discriminate between different European countries.”
On the Cyprus issue, Mitsotakis reiterated Greece’s position, calling for the establishment of a bilateral alliance with the two regions and the two communities, as the next steps to resume talks could only be agreed within the framework defined by the UN Security Council resolutions. .
The two sides also discussed the implementation of the concluded currency devaluation agreement between the EU and the United Kingdom, which includes opportunities for alliance through Northern Ireland’s protocol and (NATO 2030) agenda.
Mitsotakis thanked his British representative for inviting him to the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Conference to be held in Glasgow in November 2021, in which he announced that he would accept the invitation.
