Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis extended a warm welcome to holidaymakers from Serbia during his meeting with Serbia’s Prime Minister, Ana Brnabić, who is in Greece attending the 6th Delphi Economic Forum this week.
“We look forward to welcoming tourists from Serbia to Greece this summer,” said Mitsotakis hours before Greece opens to international travelers, adding that the country can “ensure a pleasant, but also a very, very safe stay”.
The Greek PM said Greece was open to all travelers without imposing additional quarantine restrictions on vacationers, who are either vaccinated against Covid-19, or can present negative PCR or antigen test results on arrival.
On her part, Brnabić said Greece was a favorite destination for Serbia citizens who, she said, are “very eager to visit Greece this summer”.
Brnabić invited Mitsotakis to Belgrade, and thanked Greece for accepting vaccination certificates issued in Serbia, adding that this strengthens Serbia’s vaccination campaign.
A potential trip to Greece, she said, can serve as an incentive motivating more people to get vaccinated.
The two parties also discussed Serbia-Greece ties, Serbia ‘s bid for EU membership, and cooperation in various fields including energy and connectivity.
Earlier this year, Greece and Serbia agreed to a closer cooperation aiming to counter the pandemic’s impact on tourist flows between the two countries.
