Greece to undertake initiatives in the Middle East, says FM

Foreign Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis said Greece will undertake initiatives for “beneficial results in the Middle East.” Τhe Greek FM made these statements in Jordan during his participation in the International Emergency Humanitarian Response Conference for Gaza.

“Greece can and is talking to all the parties involved and it is important to be able to support the international effort for the cessation of hostilities in the Middle East. It is a universal demand across Europe and the whole world to stop this nightmare,” Gerapetritis noted.

He added that following his proposal to the EU Council of Foreign Affairs, a special group will be set up made up of foreign ministers from both the European Union and the Arab world, with the aim of helping to adopt the peace process.

At the same time, along with the foreign ministers of Portugal and Denmark, he proposed “the formation of a group which will help reform the institutions of the new Palestinian state, when it is created, for the strengthening of the institutions, peace in the region, and the peaceful coexistence of Israel and Palestine.”

Describing the situation in Gaza as “dramatic,” Gerapetritis emphasized that Greece fully backs US President Joe Biden’s plan for the region and the need for an immediate ceasefire, the release of the hostages and the reconstruction of Gaza.
