Dendias: Greek-Serbian Relations at an Excellent Point

ATHENS — Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, in a written statement after meeting with Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic in Athens on Friday, pointed out the strong bonds between the two countries, deriving from the long friendship of their peoples and their common religious and cultural traditions. He also pointed out Greece's steadfast support of Serbia's European perspective.

Dendias said that they had the opportunity to discuss and exchange views on many different issues, as well as ways to further strengthen the already excellent relations between the two countries.

In terms of the coronavirus, Dendias said that they expressed "our desire to cooperate in a number of fields to address the repercussions of the crisis, both in our countries and in the wider region."

On Serbia's European prospect, "I reaffirmed Greece's stable support," adding that "Greek foreign policy's target is the integration of the western Balkans in the European family".

Referring to the Belgrade-Pristina's dialogue, he reiterated that Greece's position in terms of Kosovo's regime, remains the same until a final agreement is reached.

Finally, Dendias referred to the recent developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and particularlty to Turkey's behaviour, which continues to operate in a way that sets peace and stability in the area at risk.
