  • [01] Deputy FM meets with Finnish counterpart

    Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis Valinakis and Finnish counterpart Antti Peltomaki discussed Finland's upcoming assumption of the rotating EU presidency during their meeting in Athens on Monday.

    According to a foreign ministry statement, the two officials also dicussed EU enlargement, particularly the course of Turkey's EU accession talks, as well as the latest developments in the Western Balkans, with particular emphasis on Kosovo.

    Valinakis told Peltomaki, who is responsible for European Affairs, that Greece backs Turkey's and Western Balkan countries' accession based on EU criteria and principles.

    The Greek deputy minister noted that he was certain the Finnish presidency would work responsibly and decisively in this direction.

    He added that, "We support the EU prospects of our region, which will transform our neighbourhood - characterised in the past as "a powder keg" with a history marred by conflict - into a European neighbourhood of peace, democracy, prosperity and stability, with a permanent and constant commitment to good neighbourliness and with complete respect for human rights and the protection of minorities."
