Varvitsiotis Congratulates Greek Diplomats on Their Work in Mariupol

ATHENS – Alternate Foreign Minister Miltiadis Varvitsiotis referred to the operation organised by Consulate staff in Mariupol to evacuate Greeks from the area, in an interview with Open TV on Wednesday.

In particular, Varvitsiotis stressed that this is a difficult mission in the midst of a war and congratulated the Greek diplomats who kept the consulate open and are currently accompanying the humanitarian convoy.

Regarding Greece’s stance, the alternate minister noted that “it is in line with international law and is opposed to revisionism and anyone who wants to disrupt peace in Europe.”

On Europe’s role, Varvitsiotis stressed that “Europe has woken up and now realises that it must play a geopolitical role in its neighbourhood and on security issues,” and that it is now standing up against those who see war as a means of changing borders.
