Mittwoch, 11 März 2015

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Konstantinos Koutras stated the following in response to a journalist’s question on today’s statement from the assistant spokesperson for the German Foreign Ministry, Sawsan Chebli, in which she said that, as far as she knows, the issue of German war reparations was not discussed during the recent one-on-one meeting in Berlin between the Foreign Ministers of Greece and Germany:

“As far as I know, the issue of German war reparations was raised during Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias’s visit to Berlin, on 10 February 2015, in both the Joint Press Conference and the one-on-one meeting of the two Ministers, during which, in fact, Mr. Kotzias proposed to Mr. Steinmeier the setting up of a joint Greek-German Committee of wise persons to examine all the aspects of the issue.”
