Papandreou to Visit U.N., Schedules No Talks With Reagan
Premier Andreas Papandreou will visit the United States in October to attend the 40th anniversary celebrations of the United Nations, the government said today, but it mentioned no plans for Papandreou to visit Washington during his trip.
The announcement said Papandreou, who will be making his first trip to the United States since he became premier in 1981, will speak at the U.N. General Assembly and will address the Council for Foreign Relations in New York during his Oct. 19-25 visit.
A U.S. Embassy spokesman said: “We have no knowledge of any plans for a meeting between President Reagan and Mr. Papandreou.”
At a news conference last week, the Greek premier said he would work for improved relations with the United States during his second four-year term. But he also indicated that Greece intends to close four U.S. military bases in Greece when the current lease ends in 1988.
