Foreign Minister George Gerapetritis addressed the EU Foreign Ministers' meeting in Kyiv, stressing the significant consequences resulting from the breakdown of an agreement with Russia concerning the secure export of Ukrainian grain via the Black Sea. This development is particularly critical for the supply of countries in the global south.

In response to these challenges, Gerapetritis emphasized Greece's willingness to actively participate in finding a resolution. He specifically mentioned the potential for grain transportation through the ports of Northern Greece, with a particular focus on the port of Alexandroupoli, according to diplomatic sources.

The unofficial EU Foreign Ministers' gathering in Kyiv took place for symbolic reasons on Monday, with EU member-state foreign ministers reiterating their unwavering support for Ukraine and their solidarity with the Ukrainian people in their ongoing struggles.
