Greek Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas on Friday called for Syria’s leadership to stop the violence on the streets of the country, during his talks here on Mideast and North Africa developments with Cyprus President Dimitris Christofias
“It is with great concern that we heard today’s (Friday) news; another use of violence against citizens,” Droutsas said, adding: “I again call on the leadership of Syria to end violence and respect the wishes expressed by the people of this country for reforms.”
As regarding Libya, the Greek minister reiterated Athens’ position over a pressing need for serious efforts to find a solution.
"We aren’t going to see results only through military means, and the international community is obliged to seriously and responsibly make efforts towards the direction of a political solution,” he stressed.
Finally, he categorically condemned Thursday’s terrorist attack in Marrakesh, as well as any other forms of violence. “Allow me to assure Morocco and its people that Greece is next to them with solidarity,” he said.
