    (ANSAmed) - ATHENS, JUNE 9 - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki on Monday that he will support a Syriza initiative to propose the recognition of the Palestinian state by the Greek Parliament, as GreekReporter website writes quoting sources. The proposal will be submitted by Syriza's parliamentary group, the sources added, without specifying a date. The same sources said that Tsipras has an open invitation to visit Palestine and that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas may visit Greece, possibly after an agreement has been achieved with Greece’s creditors.
