With the simple phrase, “Greece returns to the Balkans”, foreign minister Nikos Kotzias set the tone of the Greek foreign policy, as he analysed it in the briefing of party representatives that took place Wednesday under the extraordinary National Foreign Policy Council, on the meetings, partnerships and agreements he recently had in his visits in seven Balkan countries. ...
Giorgos Koumoutsakos [see - JB], spoke of the compelling need of the [Greek] parties being informed on the country’s balkan policy, stressing that the exchange of views should have preceded the visits by Mr. Kotzias in these countries, since “the role of the council is not to oppose nor to validate afterwards”. ...
[H]e put forward to Kotzias the issue of a lack of cooperation of Turkey in terms of migratory flows to Greece and the need to promote public diplomacy through the Secretary General of Information.
