Greek FM Dendias briefs Deputy Sec. of State Sherman on Turkey’s recent provocative rhetoric


Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias spoke with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman earlier on Tuesday on promoting security and stability in Europe, the State Department said.

According to Spokesperson Ned Price, “Deputy Secretary Sherman and Foreign Minister Dendias stressed the importance of promoting solidarity and stability in Europe, including support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The Deputy Secretary and Foreign Minister also underscored the importance of continued coordination among NATO Allies and partners, including through the preparation of unprecedented economic measures, to deter Russia from further military action and aggression.”

Sherman tweeted: “Today I spoke with Greek Foreign Minister @NikosDendias about the critical role that Greece plays in promoting security and stability across Europe. We are committed to supporting our @NATO Allies and partners and resolving disputes diplomatically”. 

In an earlier tweet on the call, Dendias said that he discussed with Sherman “about the situation in the Ukraine and the Western Balkans,” and “briefed her on Turkey’s recent provocative statements.”
