Mitsotakis: We do not prevent Rama's visit on May 12

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis declared that Greece will not prevent the visit of his Albanian counterpart Edi Rama to Athens.

In an interview for the local media, the head of the Greek government emphasized that Rama has the full right to meet his compatriots, however, he considers this visit unnecessary.

"He is not a guest of the government, he is coming to talk with his compatriots. we will not stop the rally, but we will not facilitate it either. It is his right, a choice that I find quite unnecessary. The visit is unnecessary considering the fact that it comes at a time when the European parliamentary elections have not been held. But we have democracy, we will not stop him from coming", said Mitsotakis.

According to the head of the Greek government, the issue of Fredi Beleri is an issue that has fueled tensions between the two countries, and he continues to call it a European issue, not a bilateral one.

"We have some issues that have affected Greek-Albanian relations. The case of Fredi Beleri has indeed fueled tensions between the two countries.

The issue of Fredi Beller's ban is European, not bilateral. Against all those who claim such a thing", the Greek Prime Minister said further.

The Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama, has confirmed a visit to Athens on May 12, where he will meet with the Albanian diaspora in the neighboring country.
