A EU farm ministers' council convened here on Monday, focusing on the Union's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) over the next years and even until 2020.

Greek Agricultural Development and Foodstuffs Minister Costas Skandalidis expressed support for a CAP that will guarantee sufficiency and quality in European food and crop productions, protection of natural resources and an emphasis on the development of rural regions.

"We need an agricultural sector that effectively can handle the present economic crisis and the unprincipled fluctuations of prices and markets," Skandalidis noted.
