Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias to attend the Foreign Ministers’ Meeting on Security and Stability on the Korean Peninsula (Vancouver, 16 January 2018)

At the invitation of the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias will participate in the Foreign Ministers’ Meeting on Security and Stability on the Korean Peninsula, which is being held tomorrow, Tuesday, 16 January, in Vancouver.

A small number of countries have been invited to the Meeting that will focus on the need for the international community’s solidarity in sending a strong and cohesive message to the government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, regarding its resolve to no longer tolerate illegal nuclear and ballistic activities. A diplomatic solution for the denuclearization of the peninsula remains the ultimate goal of the international efforts. This would constitute a major step in the broader direction of the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and related technologies, which is consistently supported by our country.

Mr. Kotzias will also meet with his Japanese counterpart, Taro Kono, on the margins of the Meeting.
