Greece Irked Ukraine Getting Too Cozy with Rival Turkey

ATHENS — Playing it delicately while visiting Kiev, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias suggested Greece is unhappy that Ukraine is getting closer to Turkey, which is planning to resume an energy hunt off Greek islands during allegedly diplomacy.

He met with Ukraine's foreign chief Dmytro Kuleba and Parliamentary Speaker Dmytro Razumkov after a meeting with President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, was allegedly canceled due to last-minute changes in the leader's schedule, said Kathimerini.

While Dendias said that Ukraine’s territorial integrity must be respected, he noted Greece taking part in military exercises conducted by the NATO alliance in the Black Sea.

But Dendias said he was surprised “When Ukraine, unlike other countries that want to strengthen their bond with the EU, does not align itself with the decisions of the bloc’s common foreign policy… particularly when this concerns actions which violate the territorial integrity and the sovereign rights of EU member states and which contradict international law.

“We hope that Ukraine will soon align itself with European foreign policy,” he said, as Greece has been trying to build international alliances against Turkish on-and-off provocations with the European Union also backing away from sanctions.

Dendias also travelled to Odessa, a city with a historical Greek presence, after attended the opening day of the three-day “Ukraine.30 Forum”, held at Kiev on Monday.

At Odessa, Dendias visited the “Museum of the Filiki Etairia”, followed by a visit to the Greek Park, a public cultural space that promotes Greek culture and honors the presence of Greeks in the city.

Dendias is also expected to meet with representatives of the city’s Greek community and business persons active in the region.
