HC Deb 06 November 1980 vol 991 c634W
Q11. Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on her visit to Greece.

The Prime Minister

I visited Greece from 22 to 24 of September at the invitation of the Greek Prime Minister. My talks with Mr. Rallis, his ministerial colleagues, and with President Karamanlis, covered a wide range of international issues, including NATO and Community matters and also bilateral political and commercial questions. I also met the Leader of the Opposition. I believe that the visit strengthened our excellent relations with Greece on the eve of Greek accession to the European Community; and I welcomed the establishment of closer personal contacts in a country which has long been a good friend of Britain.
