Germany and France supported Greek positions, wrote the neurope.eu, considering, explains the article, that Greece is right, and submitted an amended resolution on Ukraine, while the UK, taking the opposite side, threatened with a veto for more than one hour demanding additional sanction against Russia, Greece’s Foreign Minister said Speaking after the end of the Foreign Minister’s extraordinary meeting, Nikos Kotzias, at the head of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs for only two days, also praised the negotiating ability of High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, noting that yesterdays seriously amended resolution was a result of diplomatic efforts that took place the last few days.

He noted that the Resolution was amended so that Greece is satisfied with it, mostly because it does not contain new sanctions but only extends existing ones and this only until September and not until December as was originally planned.

Minister also underlined that Greece no longer simply accepts what others in the European Union are preparing but has it’s own opinion and ideas in order to better promote the interests of both Greece and the European Union.
