Mitsotakis thanks Erdogan for well wishes after testing positive for COVID-19


Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, has tested positive for COVID-19.

“I will be self-isolating in my home and work from there,” the Prime Minister said in a video posted to Instagram.

“Triple vaccination provides the best possible protection against serious disease. I’m sure everything will go well and I will be back in the office very soon.”

Mitsotakis has tested positive for COVID-19.

The diagnosis comes just one day after Mitsotakis visited Istanbul in Turkey and met with Turkish President Erdogan and the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

On Twitter, Mitsotakis said Erdogan had wished him a speedy recovery from the virus during a phone call.

“Thank you President Erdogan for your call and your kindness for a speedy recovery!” Mitsotakis said in his post.

During their meeting on Sunday, both leaders had agreed to work towards improving ties between Greece and Turkey.
