BERLIN (Reuters) – Greece wants to draw up a major investment programme with Germany, especially focussed on climate protection, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Thursday during a visit to Berlin.

“We want, together with the (German) Chancellor to present an ambitious programme on climate protection in the next few years,” Mitsotakis said at a news conference with Germany’s Angela Merkel, via an interpreter. He said this would include investment in electric mobility.
