FM Dendias: We Do Not Allow Our National Territory to Be Questioned

ATHENS – Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and Defence Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos late on Tuesday briefed the members of the Standing Committee on National Defence and Foreign Affairs.

Dendias sent the message that the government has proved that "it knows how to defend the borders of Greece and Europe, our sovereignty and sovereign rights."

Dendias made it clear that the government has never allowed or will allow the loss or questioning of national territory, nor any Greek government. Referring to the real events of the last few days in Evros, the Foreign Minister reiterated that reports of alleged occupation of national territory that have recently seen the light and have also been reproduced by foreign media are fake news which should not be reproduced.

On his part, Panagiotopoulos stressed: "Greece's borders are clearly demarcated and unchanged. They do not change, they do not move."

He added that Greece guards and protects its borders and the government is doing what is right and what is needed.
