Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias' doorstep statement at the 2nd Rhodes Conference for Security and Stability (Rhodes, 22 May 2017)N. KOTZIAS: Representatives from nine Arab countries have come, plus representatives of the Arab League, for a total of ten. And seven European countries have come. We also have a delegation on the ambassadorial level from Indonesia, which we have granted observer status.

We are 18 delegations in all. Last year we were 11. So, increase in number and multiply. I have a very serious proposal to put to them. That we create a structure in the Eastern Mediterranean, along the lines of the CSCE, as well as a number of collaborations, which I imagine you will hear about now, as we start the Conference.

I thank you very much for being here.

JOURNALIST: Mr. Minister, a statement on Mr. Cavusoglu?

N. KOTZIAS: We are at a Conference for the Eastern Mediterranean, and Turkey isn't here. Thank you very much.
