Chief of Hellenic National Defence General Staff Floros Meetings in Brussels

ATHENS – Hellenic National Defence General Staff chief General Konstantinos Floros on Tuesday had a series of meetings while visiting Brussels to participate in the Summits of the Chiefs of the National Defence General Staff of the Military Committees of EU and NATO.

According to an announcement, Floros met with Greece’s permanent representative to the EU Ioannis Vrailas and the country’s ambassador to NATO, Spiros Lambridis.

They discussed the current security challenges after the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its repercussions on a regional and international level. They also spoke about the new conditions that are emerging in the Balkans, the Black Sea, Caucasus, Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, taking into account Turkey’s destabilising attitude and its escalation of provocative actions against Greece.

General Floros exchanged views on the the most important issues that will be discussed during the EU and NATO Military Committee Summits taking place on Wednesday and Thursday, May 18-19, respectively.

Emphasis was given to the importance of the armed forces’ contribution for promoting Greece’s role as a pillar of stability and security in the wider region, both in the context of NATO and EU operations, actions and initiatives and in the bilateral and multilateral partnership schemes in which Greece is participating.

General Floros was also briefed by the two Greek military representations on issues within his purview and met with the personnel serving within them and in EU and NATO services that are based in Brussels.
