Foreign ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras on Thursday underlined that the foreign ministry’s intention is to involve the national council on Foreign Policy (ESEP), academics and possibly even journalists in the shaping of the new foreign policy doctrine currently being processed, in order to have as much positive input as possible.

Foreign ministry general secretary Ambassador Ioannis-Alexios Zeppos has been assigned to draw up a rough draft of the new foreign policy doctrine on which the aforementioned debate will be held.

“Our wish is (the new doctrine) to be the product of consensus and reflect the core of our foreign policy,” Delavekouras stressed.

As regards the European External Action Service (EEAS) staff, he said that the whole process is underway and that Greece has presented a few candidates with extensive know-how, referring specifically to the appointment of Angelos Pangratis as the new head of EU Delegation to the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

“EEAS can be representative if it takes under consideration the geographic factor, thus ensuring that the member states’ composition will be reflected,” he added.
