  • [01] Deputy FM holds talks with European Parliament official

    Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis Valynakis held talks on Friday with the European Parliament's Defence and Security Committee President Karl von Wogau. "All citizens of the European Union must have the same feeling of security against external dangers, regardless of whether they live in Luxembourg or Castellorizo," Valynakis said.

    Wogau briefed Valynakis on the report on the implementation of the European Security Strategy in the framework of the European Security and Defence Policy, that was ratified on Thursday by this European Parliament Committee with a great majority.

    Valynakis and Wogau agreed on the need for the European Union to develop a stronger security and defence policy aimed at the protection of its external borders that, as the deputy minister said, must include a mutual assistance clause.

    In this context, he outlined for Wogau the Greek proposal on the creation of a European Coast Guard to achieve a more effective control of the EU's external sea borders.

    Referring to Greece, that is located in a region faced with various challenges, Valynakis pointed out that the European prospects of the countries in the region are very important because they will contribute to the creation of conditions of stability, security and cooperation, that is for the benefit of all.

    As regards Turkey's European prospects, the deputy foreign minister told Wogau that Greece's support is clear on condition that Turkey will meet the commitments it has assumed towards the EU.
