This comes as Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis plans to travel to Canada for Greek Independence Day this year. He will meet with the Canadian Prime Minister and the Greek diaspora in various cities.

Mitsotakis is later expected to be in the United States, where he will meet with President Joe Biden. Topics of discussion on the agenda include the economy and armaments, with the Greek side seeking to emphasise that Greek-American relations are autonomous and do not depend on Turkey and its own military supplies.

The Greek Prime Minister is also expected to travel to Australia this year.
