  • [01] FM on foreign policy

  • [01] FM on foreign policy

    Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis referred to the "new multi-polar balance of powers" -which has been shaped after the fall of the Berlin Wall- as well as to the political framework created by the current world economic crisis, during an address Monday to an event organised by the Constantine Karamanlis Institute of Democracy.

    The minister also expounded on the philosophy, the objectives and pursuits of Greek foreign policy which she termed "a modern patriotic policy".

    Referring to the characteristics of the current international conjuncture, Bakoyannis named them as: the existence of many factors on the central scene of the international community - traditional powers as well as emerging ones, such as the USA, Russia and the European Union, but China, India and Brazil also - the strong need for international cooperation by emphasising that "international problems need international solutions", the emergence of new issues regarding security, such as the control of the proliferation of nuclear arms and the handling of climate change and the growing existence of an "eurosceptic spirit", which "demands a bold political leadership with a vision and strong will for Europe."

    "In this political landscape, Greece proceeds with a foreign policy which is based on broader consensus, follows an organised national strategy, aims at placing Greece at the centre of decision making processes, enriches its potential with economic diplomacy activities and is being characterised by transparency, clarity and knoeledge of international realities," Bakoyannis noted.

    "Our foreign policy is being shaped and implemented with straightforwardness and looking into the future...We can not be hostages of stereotypes and phobic syndromes," she underlined.
