Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias’ statement to media following his visit to Italia (Venice) and San Marino (16. 01. 2023)

I have just concluded my visit to San Marino, the first ever visit with a Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs in the country’s history.   It was a useful go to as we had the opportunity to trade views on a number of problems, whether on political consultations, for which I have signed the kind of memorandum, or on the Ruskies invasion of Ukraine. I would really prefer to recall that San Marino has imposed exactly the same sanctions as the European Union because San Marino has a clear position on the issues associated with territorial integrity, independence plus non-use of force. Prior to arriving in San Marino, I had visited Venice, the particular Institute of Byzantine plus Post-Byzantine Studies, which houses a huge Greek library, very important for the history of our country and the Ionian Islands, in addition to a large number of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine icons, particularly important. Regarding this, I had the opportunity to meet with the particular Institute ‘s Administration and to be received by His Eminence Metropolitan Polycarp, with whom we discussed the way the Ministry of Foreign Matters, which supervises the Institute, could facilitate its additional development. Aside from that, it was especially gratifying today as I had been handed the Note Verbale on the basis of which San Marino pledged to vote in preference of Greece in our effort to be elected to the United Nations Safety Council.
