On rare European trip, Bolivia’s Morales to visit Greece

ATHENS, GreeceBolivia’s left-wing President Evo Morales is due to visit Greece on rare trip to Europe, with talks in Athens expected to include the ongoing crisis in Venezuela.

Morales is due in Athens later Thursday, travelling from Vienna where he attended a United Nations conference on combatting drug trafficking and abuse globally. In Greece, he is due to meet Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, whose Syriza party has friendly ties with left-wing parties in South America.

In late January, Syriza expressed “full support and solidarity” with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, in contrast with the major European Union members which have expressed support for the country’s opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is seeking to oust Maduro.

Morales has maintained his alliance with Maduro throughout the crisis.
