Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is going to meet tonight at 22:00 in Washington the head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde.
Samaras and Lagarde are going to make a detailed assessment of the economic developments and discuss the sustainability of the Greek debt, an issue on which there is disagreement between the IMF and the EU.
Tomorrow morning Samaras has a scheduled meeting with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.
However, the Greek Prime Minister’s visit to Washington is taking place at a time when the U.S government has shut down and already ceased the operation of the state mechanism.
Tomorrow’s gala for the inauguration of the exhibition for Byzantium, which was planned to take place at the National Gallery, has finally been cancelled.
