Meeting of Chairperson and Members of Greece-Switzerland Parliamentary Friendship Group with Ambassador of Switzerland in Athens

The Chairwoman of the Greece-Switzerland Parliamentary Friendship Group Christina Alexopoulou and the members Anastasia-Ekaterini Alexopoulou and Georgios Amanatidis met with the Ambassador of Switzerland Olaf Kjelsen

The meeting was held in a cordial and friendly atmosphere, as a result of the historical ties of the two countries, stemming primarily from the action and contribution of Ioannis Kapodistrias in the creation of both modern Switzerland and Greece.

Extensive reference was made to the excellent bilateral relations between Greece and Switzerland, a result of parliamentary cooperation and common components in the field of tourism, energy and technology. The supportive position of Switzerland on the issue of the return of the Parthenon Marbles was particularly emphasised. 

 Both the representatives of the Greece-Switzerland Parliamentary Friendship Group and the Ambassador of Switzerland expressed the desire to further strengthen contacts through the exchange of visits and exchanges between Universities and Academic Institutions of the two countries.
