Palestinian President in Greece for Official Visit

Monday, 21 December 2015 05:27 PM EST

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has arrived in Athens on a two-day official visit.

Abbas, who arrived in the Greek capital on Sunday, will meet with President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Monday, and will speak at Greece's Parliament on Tuesday.

Parliament's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee has unanimously called on the Greek government to recognize Palestinian statehood.

Tsipras' leftist-led government is trying to balance improved relations with Israel with his party's longstanding support for a Palestinian state. Tsipras visited Israel last month, meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He also met with Abbas in Ramallah, West Bank.
