  • [01] Greek, Mexico deputy FMs in NY

    Greek deputy foreign minister Yannis Valinakis met with Mexico's foreign undersecretary, Ambassador Juan Manuel Gomez Robledo in New York, on the sidelines of the 63rd UN General Assembly on Friday, during which they reviewed bilateral relations and underlined the importance of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries, which will be formally celebrated on August 12, 2009.

    Both sides noted that this milestone constitutes an excellent opportunity to further strengthen the relations of the two countries.

    Undersecretary Gomez Robledo thanked Greece for its support for Mexico's (successful) candidacy for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council for the period 2009-2010, and reiterated that the participation of Mexico in the Security Council will be aimed at promoting peaceful settlement of disputes; peace and stability; and upholding the principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter.

    Valinakis briefed Gomez Robledo on developments regarding the name issue of the State provisionally referred to as the ?Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia?. In this regard, Gomez Robledo underlined that the Government of Mexico fully supports the United Nations efforts to find a mutually acceptable solution on the subject. He also assured that, pending settlement of the difference that has arisen over the name of that State, Mexico provisionally refers to that State as the ?Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia?, in conformity with the relevant Security Council Resolutions 817/93 and 845/93, for all international and bilateral purposes.

    Finally, Deputy Minister Valinakis and Undersecretary Gomez Robledo emphasized the readiness of both Governments to further promote trade and investment opportunities, taking full advantage of the Free Trade Agreement between the European Union and Mexico.
