Foreign Minister Petros Molyviatis will be one of the three foreign affairs ministers to visit Belgrade and Pristina to discuss the status of Kosovo, during an informal visit by the South Eastern European Cooperation Process (SEECP) 'troika', the Greek foreign ministry announced on Thursday.
Foreign ministry spokesman George Koumoutsakos said that Molyviatis will be accompanied by his counterparts from Romania and Croatia and that the planned visits will most likely take place on December 6-7.
The aim of the visits is to underline the interest of neighboring Balkan countries in the crucial issue of Kosovo's status and for all sides to be fully briefed on the issue, as well as to underline the need for constant consultation and cooperation, the spokesman said.
He stressed that preserving the stability of the region was the top priority and that a settlement for Kosovo must on no account lead to destabilization for the region.
The inviolability of borders and the achievement of stability were two principles that were completely connected and unwavering for Greek foreign policy, he added.
