Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias attended the Ukraine Accountability Conference, hosted by Dutch Foreign Affairs Minister Wopke Hoekstra at The Hague’s World Forum on Thursday.

It was coorganized with the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court and the European Commission.

This is “a rather important matter for Greece overall,” noted Dendias in a statement to Greek journalists after the conference. First and foremost, he said, it is significant “about the crimes committed in Mariupol, and indeed after my meeting with survivors from Mariupol, two days ago in Odessa,” he added.

“We will do everything we can to help the International Criminal Court (…), because we believe that the worst thing that can happen is impunity,” he stressed.

The Greek minister noted that he also had the opportunity to meet with his Dutch, Danish and Icelandic counterparts, with whom, he said, he discussed European Union security policy issues.

With Denmark’s Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod he also discussed developments in the Eastern Mediterranean, cooperation between Greece and Denmark within the framework of the European Council’s Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO), the migration/refugees issue, and Dendias’ recent visit to Odessa.

With Holland’s Foreign Affairs Minister Wopke Hoekstra, Dendias also discussed developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and the two countries’ cooperation in the PESCO framework.

With Iceland’s Foreign Affairs Minister Þórdís Kolbrún Reykfjörð Gylfadóttir, Dendias also discussed collaboration in NATO and in the Council of Europe, and bilateral relations at large. Dendias noted that “Iceland is a small country, but it has close relations with Greece and many similarities, being an island country, with which we have many points of common interest in the context of the United Nations Organization, and also in the context of the Law of the Sea.”
