Background: VISNEWS filmed Feb 11 the arrival and reception at Athens Airport of British Admiral Alexander N.C.Bingley, new Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Naval Forces, Mediterranean.
It was the first since the Greco-British tension over Cyprus that a British Admiral was received with special honours: Chief of the Royal Hellenic Navy, Admiral Tstsos, headed Nato officers, to greet him. The two Naval chiefs then inspected a guard of honour.
Admiral Bingley, accompanied by Rear Admiral St.John R.J.Tyrwhitt, his Chief of Staff, are in Athens for a short goodwill visit. They are due to visit Nato sub-command headquarters for the Mediterranean in Ankara later.
