  • [01] DM visits Greek mission in Kosovo

    Defence Minister Evangelos Meimarakis underscored the contribution of the Greek armed forces to reinforcing peace and stability in the Balkan region when he visited the Greek peace-keeping mission in Kosovo on Wednesday.

    Meimarakis met with the members of the Greek peace-keeping force in Urosevac and Mitrovica and wished them a Happy Easter.

    "Greece is not and should not be isolated from developments unfolding in the broader region," he said, noting that the stabilising role Greece and its armed forces are playing in the region is being recognised by friends and allies.

    Meimarakis also visited the Armenian officers stationed at the same camp as the Greek force in Urosevac.
