Greek diplomat shocked by the statement about the so-called Kosovo – 24sata online

Former Greek ambassador Alexandros Malias stated that Greece will eventually recognize the independence of the so-called Kosovo.

In the author’s text for the newspaper "Kathimerini”, Malijas spoke about the relations between Greece, Albania and the so-called Kosovo, ie the policy pursued by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias.

"High-level contacts with Kosovo have intensified. More than 16 years have passed (March 3, 2005) since the then Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis visited the so-called Kosovo. "It was the first and, unfortunately, the last visit of the Prime Minister to that independent state, which Greece did not recognize and which is located two hours from the Evzoni border crossing,” Malias wrote.

Malias, who was the Greek ambassador to Washington, says that the agreement between Greece and the so-called Kosovo has improved the country’s position, which could "embrace” Pristina and suppress Turkey’s influence in the Balkans.

"Minister Dendias has initiated a high-level dialogue between Greece and the Republic of Kosovo. At the end of the road, there will probably be recognition. "This development, which would bring Greece closer to the Albanian factor, would disrupt Turkey’s dominance,” he said.

Such a document, which Malias calls a "pact”, would have to include provisions that would prohibit any association of the so-called Kosovo with another country or territory.

"Recognition is therefore combined with the basic condition for the wider region regarding the exclusion of border changes, divisions and exchanges of territories (with Serbia) and a possible future union (with Albania),” he said.

Speaking about how such a decision by Athens will affect Serbia, Malias writes that Greek-Albanian relations should not affect Serbia.

"Despite warnings from Serbian officials who have forgotten that Greece has spent large amounts of diplomatic capital in the past to support Yugoslav and Serbian policies,” he said.
