PM Samaras briefs president on results of China-Azerbaijan trip
Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Tuesday paid a visit to President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias in order to brief him on the results of his trip to China and Azerbaijan.
Receiving Samaras, Papoulias noted that the Greek premier had had "a very good trip," with Samaras replying: "There will be more."
"We must create an opportunity for Greece and Greeks. In this way it is made clear that Greece is dynamically returning to areas where it is worth having contacts in order to create investment opportunities to reduce unemployment, especially among the young," the premier added.
Samaras also emphasised the need to follow up the effort and replied to the president's questions regarding the situation in Shanghai, noting that both the Chinese and Azeri presidents were pleased to receive an invitation to visit Greece.
Samaras carried out an official visit to China on May 15-19, meeting the country's new political leadership, and a brief working visit to Azerbaijan on Sunday, where he had a meeting with Azeri President Ilham Aliyev, before his return to Athens.
