Ger­many’s new am­bas­sador to Greece, Jens Ploet­ner, has pre­sented his cre­den­tials to Pres­i­dent Prokopis Pavlopou­los and vowed to work to main­tain ties be­tween the two coun­tries. “Ger­many and Greece share a long tra­di­tion of a close and mul­ti­fac­eted re­la­tion­ship,” he said on Thursday after meet­ing Pavlopou­los. “We want to in­ten­sify this co­op­er­a­tion as I am con­vinced that it is indis­pens­able and is at the core of the bi­lat­eral and Euro­pean in­ter­est.” The diplo­mat, who pre­vi­ously served in Sri Lanka and Tu­nisia, said that the re­forms and eco­nomic sac­ri­fices of the last few years must not be in vain. Ploet­ner added that he has a “great in­ter­est” in help­ing es­tab­lish a Greek-Ger­man Youth Foun­da­tion.
