President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou and German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier highlighted the excellent relations and the prospects for even closer cooperation between Greece and Germany during their meeting at the Bellevue presidential mansion on Thursday, during Sakellaropoulou’s official visit to Germany.
The Greek president referred to the two countries’ shared vision, which she said was based on the rule of law and repulsing all forms of revisionism, while Steinmeier emphasised the grave responsibility of politicians during the current difficult time and the prospects for the development of even closer and more friendly relations between the two countries.
Steinmeier expressed his satisfaction at Sakellaropoulou’s first visit to Germany, clarifying that this had been delayed due to the pandemic, while also expressing his certainty that “intensive deliberations” between the two presidents will significantly contribute to further enhancing the already close and friendly bilateral relations.
Sakellaropoulou said her visit to Germany was proof of the excellent level of relations between the two countries and said her meeting with Steinmeier would promote a “common perception on a series of major issues concerning the challenges of our times. Both countries share a common vision for the future of our continent, which is based on common values, the European values, the rule of law and repulsing revisionism, wherever it may come from”.
