Foreign Minister Kotzias Stresses Greece's Importance in Regional Stability

Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias underlined the geopolitical importance of Greece in the meeting of Med Group diplomats. Mr. Kotzias underlined that a possible Greek economic collapse would have negative results in the entire region.
As he argued, Greece’s destabilization at this time would be particularly dangerous given the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. “If some people destabilize Greece because they want to humiliate our country or to gain revenge for the resistance shown by the election results, they should bear in mind that they will see the whole of Europe destabilized,” the Greek Foreign Minister said referring to the country’s Eurozone partners. “They cannot punish Greece without punishing themselves,” Mr. Kotzias concluded.
The meeting was held in Paris and attended by the Foreign Ministers of Greece, Cyprus, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Malta. The Med Group ministers discussed the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean region putting their emphasis on the developments in war-torn Syria, Iraq and Libya, as well as the crisis in Ukraine, which the Greek Foreign Minister visited on Thursday for talks with his Ukranian counterpart Pavlo Klimkin. The High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy of the European Union Federica Mogherini also attended the Med Group meeting.
