Deputy Foreign Minister Diamataris resigns

The PM accepted his resignation

Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Antonis Diamataris has handed in his resignation.

PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis has reportedly accepted his resignation, according to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, following the outcry caused by his admission that he did not hold a degree from Columbia University.

The Minister is responsible for the Hellenic Affairs and the ex-pats and is currently in Australia on an official eight-day visit. The visit was scheduled to begin today and end on December 13, with meetings scheduled with representatives of the Diaspora.
