Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller will meet with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis in Athens on Tuesday.

They are due to discuss “current energy issues of interest,” according to a media statement of the Energy Ministry, as cited by Reuters.

Gazprom Spokesman Sergei Kuprianov has confirmed Miller's visit but has not disclosed the agenda of the meeting.

During his visit to Moscow at the beginning of the month, Tsipras expressed Greece’s interest in participating in a gas pipeline scheduled to carry Russian gas to Europe.

According to sources close to the matter, the pipeline is to be discussed during Tuesday’s talks in Athens.
