Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias will have series of meetings in New York

Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, who accompanies Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in his trip to New York, will participate in the proceedings of the Ministerial Week of the 74th UN General Assembly in New York, which will end on September 29.

Greece, as a member of NATO and the EU’s core, is seeking, according to diplomatic sources, to play its role in regional and international developments, strictly focused on international law and the principle of good neighborliness.

As a pillar of stability in SE Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean, our country aims, steadily and methodically, through the network of bilateral relations and multilateral forms of cooperation, growth and prosperity in the wider region.

This is an excellent opportunity to highlight Greek foreign policy priorities, but also to have contacts with high-ranking officials with whom Greece does not often have the opportunity to be at the same table with emerging Asian economies and economies of Latin America. In addition, it will be a particularly useful opportunity to effectively promote Greece’s bid to become a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in the period 2025-26.
