Greek Foreign Minister D. Bakoyannis on Foreign Policy

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis referred to the “new multi-polar balance of powers” – which has taken shape since the fall of the Berlin Wall – as well as to the political framework created by the current world economic crisis, during an address on Monday at an event organised by the Constantine Karamanlis Institute of Democracy. The minister also expounded on the philosophy, the objectives and pursuits of Greek foreign policy which she termed a modern patriotic policy.  “In this political landscape, Greece proceeds with a foreign policy which is based on a broader consensus, follows a consistent national strategy, aims at placing Greece at the centre of decision making processes, enriches its potential with economic diplomacy activities and is being characterised by transparency, clarity and knowledge of international realities,” Bakoyannis noted.  Athens News Agency: FM on foreign policy
