Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias informed the public at an Athens press conference held with his Italian counterpart Luigi Di Maio on Tuesday that Greece will gradually lift all restrictions on Italian travelers, beginning on Monday and continuing until the end of the month.
Dendias stated “Minister Di Maio has updated me on significantly improved data in Italy,” referring to that country’s more promising COVID epidemic statistics at present. “Greece, starting next Monday, will gradually lift all limitations towards Italy until the end of the month. I express solidarity from the Greek people to the Italian people.”
Di Maio stated at the press conference that he was “happy” about the Foreign Minister’s “reassurance on the fact that Greece will surely open to Italy by the end of the month, eliminating any type of blockade and quarantine obligation for Italians with the pledge to evaluate, based on data, on the reopening already in the coming weeks.”
The two foreign ministers also signed a new agreement regarding the delimitation of maritime zones between the two countries.
