President Obama has agreed to meet Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou on March 9th in the White House. The Greek prime minister was trying to schedule a meeting with the US president since he took office as Greece’s leader this past fall. Obama had not responded favorably to a meeting with Papandreou even though powerful Greek-American organizations and individuals who were pushing for it. The Greek Prime minister’s agenda includes the reaffirmation from the US to help improve Greek-Turkish relations,  and that the current administration remains on Greece’s side in this pivotal moment of the country’s economy.

Obama is expected to ask Papandreou to paticipate in talks regarding the solution in Cyprus, resolve the name issue with F.Y.R.O.M, and keep the promises of the previous Greek administration to send Army forces to Afghanistan.
