Dendias: France Expresses the Epitome of the European Solidarity

January 17, 2022

ATHENS – “France expresses the epitome of European solidarity, as provided in the Lisbon Treaty,” underlined Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias in a statement after the conclusion of a working breakfast hosted by the French Embassy in Athens on Monday.

The working breakfast was held on the occasion of France taking over the six-month presidency of the Council of the European Union, for the ambassadors of the other EU member states.

“Cooperation with our ally France is daily becoming stronger in all areas,” underlined Dendias.

He reported that in his discussion with the EU member-state ambassadors, he had referred to the challenges Greece is facing, such as the problems in the Balkans but especially to the escalation in Turkey’s rhetoric, which had reached entirely new levels, a level where it openly disputed Greece’s sovereignty over the islands of eastern Aegean.

“Additionally, I emphasised the openings Greece is making in foreign policy, which it follows at the orders of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, with my visits both to Africa and to various other countries and the great interest that Greece now has in sub-Saharan Africa, in which France, protecting European interests, is extremely active,” Dendias said.

The priorities of the French Presidency in the first six months of 2022 were also discussed and Dendias thanked the Ambassador of France Patrick Maisonnave for organising the meeting.
