The President of the Republic of Macedonia, Stevo Pendarovski, starts today the two-day official visit to Greece, which is also the first at the highest level between the two countries, given that so far, no president of our country has visited Athens, nor anyone Greek President was in Skopje, MIA correspondent from Athens reported.

Sakellaropoulou and Pendarovski will have a tete-a-tete meeting, as well as a plenary meeting of the delegations of the two countries.

From the Presidential Palace, President Pendarovski will leave for the Prime Minister’s Palace, where he will meet with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, and during the day he will meet with the Mayor of Athens, Kostas Bakoyannis.

During the visit, the President will visit the Benaki Museum, where a tour of the archives of Constantinos Doxiadis is scheduled, and will meet with US Ambassador to Greece Jeffrey Payatt.

During the visit, President Pendarovski will be accompanied by his wife, Elizabeta Gjorgievska, who will visit the National Gallery in Athens as part of the ladies’ program, accompanied by Greek Minister of Culture and Sports Lina Mendoni.

The President’s Office said in a statement about the official visit that “it is the first historic visit that will be realized at the highest level between the two countries.”
