- FM @ NATO Meeting in Brussels
FM Dimas participated in a NATO Foreign Ministers Meeting held in Brussels on December 7. At its final statement, the alliance reaffirmed its Open Door policy
and strong commitment to the Euro-Atlantic integration of aspirant partners - including FYROM - in accordance with previous decisions taken at the Bucharest, Strasbourg-Kehl and Lisbon Summits, stressing that "democratic values, regional cooperation, and good neighbourly relations are important for lasting peace and stability."
On his part, Dimas highlighted that three key points
should be made clear to all interested parties. Firstly, that Greece is committed to a speedy resolution of the name issue through negociations under the UN.
Secondly, that the name issue will be resolved through a formal negotiation procedure in good faith and through political will which the Greek side has already exhibited. Thirdly, that Greece is determined to work towards the European integration of the Balkan region within the framework of preparations for the 2014 Greek EU presidency.
