THESSALONIKI – Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias on Monday stressed that “Greece’s hope and volition is for the March European Council meeting to set a date for the start of EU accession negotiations for both North Macedonia and Albania,” speaking after the end of the High-Level Conference on the European Perspective of the Western Balkans, held in Thessaloniki on Monday.
