Diplomatic relations between Greece and Mexico were established in Washington, DC on 17 May, 1938. Between 1955-1964 diplomatic relations were carried out between Mexico's embassy in Rome, Italy and Greece's embassy in Washington, DC, USA; and through their respective honorary consulates. In 1965 resident embassies were established in each other's capitals.[1] In 1963, President Adolfo López Mateos was the first highest ranking Mexican official to visit Greece. In August 1986, the visit was reciprocated by Greek Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou.[1]
