    [02] Greece urges political solution in Syria

    AMNA / Greece on Thursday stressed the need for a political solution in Syria that respects the country's sovereignty and independence, and endorsed the immediate implementation of the Annan Plan.

    Foreign ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras told a regular press briefing that the Greek Embassy in Damascus was in contact with the Greeks in strife-torn Syria and has instructed them "to take all precautions" and remain in contact.

    He endorsed the immediate implementation of the Annan Plan as well as the need of finding a political solution, with respect for Syria's sovereignty and independence and the volition of the Syrian people, while also noting the historic bonds between Athens and Damascus.

    Questioned on Athens' stance in the event of an Israeli or US military attack against Syria or Iran and whether Greece would provide facilitation, given the country's military cooperation accord with Israel, Delavekouras stressed that there can be only a political solution in Syria, adding that he did not intend to comment on "war scenarios". www.amna.gr
