Prime Minister George Papandreou will be leaving for Paris on Saturday morning to participate in the meeting of Euromediterranean Cooperation leaders on developments in Libya.

The initiative for the meeting belongs to French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Papandreou will leave for the French capital at 10:30 a.m., while earlier at 9 in the morning (instead of 10 a.m. that had been initially announced) he will chair a meeting of the Socialist International that will be taking place at the Acropolis Museum and will have as its theme the developments in the wider Middle East region and North Africa.
