United States President Barack Obama may visit Athens shortly after the United States presidential elections on November 8. Sources close to the White House say that the official visit will take place from November 14-15, before Obama heads to Berlin.
During his European visit, Obama will have meetings with a number of leaders shortly before officially ending his tenure as U.S. president.
The Greek government has neither confirmed nor denied the reports, however, there is a great deal of commotion at the Greek Foreign Ministry. It is believed that an official announcement concerning the visit will be made soon either by the White House or the Greek side.
The Greek government desperately needs Obama’s intervention concerning debt relief for the country and support by the U.S. government would be seen as a major bonus for Greece.
