Greece to back Turkey’s bid for visa-free travel across EU

Greece will back Turkey’s bid for visa-free travel across the European Union countries, because tourists from the neighboring country support Greece’s economy, Greek Tourism Minister said, according to Hurriyet Daily News.

“We will support the Turks’ right of free movement in the European Union,” Olga Kefalogianni told Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) President Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu, during recent a Turkish mission to Athens.

Procedures for Turks to travel to four Greek islands have already been eased, and visas are no longer required from Turks with green passports, Kefalogianni said, adding that the number of Turkish tourists to Greece had increased 180 percent in a very short period of time.

“This brought about a revival for our economy. Currently we are preparing a report on the subject, and will present it to Brussels in October,” Kefalogianni said.
