President Pavlopoulos Addresses 11th Balkan CHODs Conference in Athens

There has to be cooperation between the armed forces of the Balkan countries in order to ensure peace and stability in the region, President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos said on Wednesday in his address to the annual meeting of Balkan chiefs of defense and general staff (11th Balkan Countries CHODs Conference) held in Athens.
Only in this way can the Balkans act as a bridge between East and West, Pavlopoulos said, while underlining Greece's steadfast support for the European course of Balkan countries and repeating the conditions for joining, as laid out by the European Union and the community acquits.
Pavlopoulos noted that these conditions boiled down to a basic three: firstly, that those wishing to join the European family must not only preach but also deeply believe in peace and peaceful coexistence with other EU countries; secondly, that they respect history and historical truth, which was necessary for peaceful coexistence; and lastly, that they sincerely respect the entire body of international law and the fundamental values of the European acquits.
The conference brings together the chiefs of defense/general staff of Greece, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Montenegro, FYROM, Romania, Serbia and Turkey.
