Tsipras-Kammenos meeting on Tuesday

Government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos on Monday morning announced that Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will meet with his junior coalition partner, Defense Minister Panos Kammenos, on Tuesday, as press speculation continued to swirl in the Greek capital over “clouds” in the relationship between the two “strange bedfellows” coalition party leaders.

Spokesman Tzanakopoulos added that the subject of the meeting is the still unresolved issue of two Greek servicemen being held in the Turkish town of Edirne, after allegedly straying into Turkish territory along a poorly marked border boundary in extreme northeast Greece.

Moreover, speaking on the Athens television station Skai, Tzanakopoulos said relations between Tsipras and Kammenos were “excellent”.
