French President due in Athens on February 18, sources say

French President Francois Hollande is to pay an official visit to Athens on February 18, according to sources.

The French leader, who accepted an invitation extended to him by Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras during last November’s European leaders’ summit, is to visit Athens following a scheduled trip to India in mid-February.

Samaras held talks with Hollande in Paris toward the end of August.
