Greek foreign minister Dimitris Droutsas is due in London on Tuesday for a two-day formal visit.

While in London, Droutsas will meet with his British counterpart, foreign secretary William Hague. He is also scheduled to have talks with Minister for Europe and NATO David Liddington, opposition leader David Miliband, and to hold a press conference at the end of his contacts.

Droutsas will be in Nicosia on Monday for meetings with Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and foreign minister Markos Kyprianou, while on Friday he will be in New York for talks with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon focusing on the Cyprus issue ahead of the UN chief's submission of his report to the UN Security Council later in the month.
