Greece’s Foreign Policy Multidimensional, Not EU-Centered
ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) Greece does not support sanctions imposed on Russia by the European Union, the Greek government special adviser for BRICS affairs told Sputnik Wednesday, adding that Athens is in favor of normalizing EU-Moscow relations.

"Our government has a clear position on that: it is against sanctions," Panagiotis Roumeliotis said. "We should try to work on the European level to overcome the difficulties and the political and economic problems in order to establish and enhance relations with Russia."

He pointed out that on a one-on-one level, EU countries have good relations with Russia.

"We are trying to understand better how we can enhance cooperation with Russia, respecting the interests of more sides," Roumeliotis emphasized.
