French President Hollande arrives in Athens for two-day visit


French President Francois Hollande on Thursday began a two-day visit in Athens, bringing badly-needed support to Greece’s leftist government during tough talks with EU-IMF auditors.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras welcomed Hollande at Athens international airport ahead of the French President’s meeting with his counterpart Prokopis Pavlopoulos at the Presidential Mansion.
