Greek FM visits Israel, receives a warm welcome
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met in Jerusalem with Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias, who arrived in Israel for a three-day official visit the day after the crucial referendum in which a majority of Greeks voted against the European Union bailout. The visit was scheduled in advance of the Greek crisis. It was the first by a senior Greek official since the left-wing Syriza party took power. Kotzias met with Deputy Foreign Minister, Tzipi Hotovely and is scheduled to sit down with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin, Cabinet ministers, Opposition leader Yitzchak Herzog and Palestinian Authority leaders.
