Dendias answered a journalist’s question on the situation in Ukraine

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias answered a journalist’s questions during his visit to Paris for an extraordinary meeting of the Council EU Foreign Affairs (EUSF).

JOURNALIST: Mr. Minister, in a few hours the EU Foreign Affairs Council will hold an extraordinary meeting dedicated to the events in Ukraine. What position is Greece moving from?

N. DENDIAS: First of all, this morning in Athens, under the chairmanship of Prime Minister K. Mitsotakis, a KYSEA meeting was held, at which, along with the issue of energy, the Ukrainian issue was discussed. Beyond that, we have very simple and clear priorities. First, it is a matter of principle. Greece stands for the territorial integrity of all countries in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and world principles and values. However, we have a special issue: the protection of the Greek minority to the right and left of the line of contact, a large minority of 150,000 people. As I did yesterday, I am going to raise this issue in the light of new developments in the region.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs urges Greek citizens who are traveling or are going to visit Ukraine to cancel their trips.
