Alternate Foreign Minister G. Katrougalos attends Conference on Defence and Security in Europe (Prague, 9 June 2017)
Alternate Foreign Minister Giorgos Katrougalos took part today in the European Conference on Defence and Security, in Prague. At the conference, which was held in the context of the wider dialogue on the Future of Europe, the President of the European Commission, Jean Claude Juncker, and the European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini, presented the European Commission's positions on Defence.
Mr. Katrougalos participated in the event's first panel and discussed the outlook for the EU's defence and foreign policy with France's new Armed Services Minister, Sylvie Goulard, and the Foreign Ministers of the Czech Republic, Lubomír Zaorálek, and Slovakia, Miroslav Lajčák.
The Alternate Foreign Minister stressed the need to strengthen the autonomy of the EU's defence policy, both to enhance its international role as a global player for stability and peace, and to meet European citizens' need for security and protection from the fear of all types of threats.
Mr. Katrougalos highlighted that European policies are interdependent and that the debate on the future of Europe cannot but put the need for the Union to become more democratic and social at centre stage.
Afterwards, Mr. Katrougalos had bilateral meetings with his counterparts, and tomorrow he will meet with entrepreneurs to strengthen bilateral economic relations with the Czech Republic.
