Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, G. Katrougalos, attends the 3rd Forum of the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (Catania, 24.05.2018)

“The biggest problem Europe is facing today is the sharp rise in inequalities within and between states; inequalities that undermine both the economy and democracy.” Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs Giorgos Katrougalos stressed this in his address to the 3rd Forum of the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region, which is taking place in Catania.“In contrast,” Mr. Katrougalos added, “these EU initiatives for the countries of the Adriatic and Ionian Region, which link EU member states with countries that are candidates or potential candidates for accession, enhance the region’s political and economic stability. We need regional strategies that will contribute to just development that benefits all of the European Union’s citizens. No citizen should be left behind and driven to poverty or unemployment.” “Greece,” Mr. Katrougalos highlighted, “promotes similar policies in the wider Balkan region, strengthening cooperation in the sectors of energy, transport and trade.”Issues of maritime and onshore cross-border cooperation during the period 2021-2027, the migration- and refugee-related challenges for the countries in the region, and the potential for further cooperation were discussed at the Forum.Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia are the countries participating in the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region. For the first time, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia was welcomed as an observer,in an effort towards confidence-building measures between the states of the region. FYROM submitted an application to become the ninth country participating in this EU Strategy.

Experience: I found out that my aunt and uncle are my real parents

I felt shock at first. This woman suddenly wasn’t Mum any more. Then I felt deceived and angry I was 24 and had just finished my undergraduate degree when, out of the blue, my elderly Greek mother announced that she had something to tell me. “But you look busy, so I’ll tell you later…” I said, “Mum, if you’ve got something to say, tell me now.” She was nervous and asked me to sit down, but I refused. I thought she was going to tell me somebody was dying. Instead, she revealed that she was not my biological mother. Her brother, one of my many uncles, a man I’d never met, who lived in northern Greece, was my real father. I slumped against the wall in shock. By the end, I was splayed on the floor.
