Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis today held a teleconference with the heads of Greek Embassies and Permanent Representations abroad, continuing for the third consecutive year an initiative established in 2022.

During the discussion, in which he also participated the Minister of Foreign Affairs Giorgos Gerapetritis, there was a review of the actions of Greek foreign policy last year and an assessment of the country’s image on the international stage, while the multi-layered challenges in the geopolitical landscape shaped by the conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East were examined. It was pointed out that the position of Greece and its diplomatic capital have been substantially upgraded, while at the same time the strong recovery of the economy, the cultivation of an extroverted model and the credibility of the country are recognized internationally.

“I want to focus on a very important democratic conquest for our country, which is none other than the postal vote. We will need your help there, because in the next three months the registration platform will be essentially open, which will enable not only those who live abroad, but also those who wish to do so in Greece – you are more concerned with them who live abroad – to register so that they can vote in this way in the European elections”, said the Prime Minister during his introductory remarks.

“It is very important that you and all your staff and our consular authorities advertise this possibility to the Greek communities. And of course to be able to facilitate those who want to register. The process will be quite simple. It is a big bet for us to be able to attract as many of our fellow citizens as possible to the elections”, Kyriakos Mitsotakis emphasized.
