ATHENS — The Greek Foreign Affairs Ministry welcomed the agreement in principle reached between the European Union and the United Kingdom on Brexit that will regulate the future relationship of the two, in a statement on Thursday evening.
As the Foreign ministry noted, the agreement will establish the basis for building a new strong partnership between the EU and its members states on one hand and the UK on the other, a country which remains an integral part of Europe.
The ministry also said it looks foward to the implementation of the agreement and the empowering of UK relations with Greece, as well as those between the EU and the UK.
Concluding its statement, the Foreign ministry also expressed its great appreciation to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and chief negotiator of the EU's task force for Brexit Michel Barnier, "for their particularly significant contribution toward the conclusion of the agreement."
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis congratulated European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and chief EU negotiator for Brexit Michel Barnier for their success in achieving an agreement with the United Kingdom on Brexit, on Thursday.
"European unity remained strong through an arduous process," Mitsotakis said, "while EU member states' interests were protected. Now we can build a mutually beneficial relationship between the EU and the UK."
