‘Greece remains a pillar of stability,’ PM says in Brussels

"Greece remains a pillar of stability in an incredibly destabilized region," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Thursday as he headed into a meeting of the European People's Party in Brussels.

"We are here to reiterate our commitment to regional stability," the center-right leader, who is also in the Belgian capital for a two-day European Union summit, said.
