Looks like the visit has been cancelled at least for today because Tsipras is going to visit Thassos where a state of emergency has been declared because of the fires.

Over 250 firefighters, along with 40 soldiers, 15 volunteers, 5 aircraft and 4 helicopters have been struggling against the strong winds to contain the fire, which broke out early on Saturday morning.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras cancelled a visit to a school on Monday in order to head to the island.
