Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Ger­man Pres­i­dent Frank-Wal­ter Stein­meier started the fi­nal leg of his two-day visit to Greece with a tour of An­cient Messene in the Pelo­pon­nese yes­ter­day, ac­com­pa­nied by his Greek coun­ter­part Prokopis Pavlopou­los and guided by the ar­chae­o­log­i­cal site’s di­rec­tor of ex­ca­va­tions, Pet­ros Themelis.

“We may not have seen ev­ery­thing, but we have seen enough to un­der­stand why so many Ger­mans have set­tled in this area,” Stein­meier said af­ter ex­press­ing his ad­mi­ra­tion for the work be­ing done at the site.

The two pres­i­dents then vis­ited the town of Kala­mata, where Stein­meier was awarded with the key to the city be­fore en­joy­ing a stroll and a cof­fee.
