  • [01] Droutsas meets Ecum. Patriarch

    ISTANBUL (ANA-MPA/M. Savva) - Alternate Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas visited Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos at the Fanar on Wednesday and reassured that Greece and the Greek government are always by the side of the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the difficult task that it is carrying out.

    Droutsas reassured the Patriarch that in talks he will be having in Ankara on Thursday, the Greek side will raise the issues of the Patriarchate's rights, which also constitute "obligations of Turkey that emanate from the fact that Turkey is a candidate country for accession to the EU."

    On his part, Vartholomeos referred to the special importance attributed by the Patriarchate to the course of Greek-Turkish relations "both for its own existence and the stability and balance in the relations of the two neighbours and allied peoples."
