Mitsotakis and Jansa: Greece, Slovenia support EU's decision on green vaccination passport

Greece and Slovenia both support the European Union's decision for a green vaccination passport, as it is a flexible measure and applicable by all member countries, the prime ministers of the two countries Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Janez Jansa said in Athens on Monday.

In joint statements after a meeting, Mitsotakis said that the two countries share values in the EU and NATO, where they are both members. He also said that "our bilateral collaboration is growing dynamically," and will grow further with the EU's expansion into the western Balkans. When Slovenia assumes the rotating presidency of the Council of the EU from Portugal in July, "it will provide acceleration to this dynamic growth," the Greek premier said.

Jansa expressed his appreciation for being in Athens to attend the Delphi Economic Forum at Zappeion Hall, and said that Greece and Slovenia have deep-rooted ties through time past. "We share common approaches," he said, and congratulated his Greek counterpart for handling the coronavirus pandemic successfully.

The Slovenian premier also thanked Greece for its support in Slovenia's bid for membership in MED7 and underlined that although his country's coastline is small, its role is great. Jansa also revealed that Slovenia's presidency will focus on the European Union's enlargement, to "fulfil an old vision for a free and peaceful Europe."
