  • [01] Alt. FM on Netanyahu visit

    ANA-MPA/Alternate Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas, replying on a question on the visit to Athens by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during an interview with a local television channel, reiterated that Greek foreign policy is has not changed.

    Droutsas stressed that closer contacts with Israel are not circumstantial, reminding that during the 1994-2004 period many substantive overtures had been made towards the Israeli side.

    The minister also stressed that the moves that Athens is making with Israel and the policy it is exercising cannot place relations with Turkey in jeopardy.

    "... all our neighbours must realise that Greece has its own interests, it exercises its own foreign policy on the basis of values and on the basis of our own interests."

    Finally, he cited what he called a very consistent policy towards Turkey, "we desire rapprochement and close cooperation with Turkey and we are receiving the same message from the Turkish side as well."
