Greece may pursue conflict compensations from Germany


(MENAFN) Greece has not given up on the problem of German compensations for the crimes committed throughout World War II, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias made a statement on Wednesday.

Talking at a joint press conference with his Polish fellow Zbigniew Rau in Warsaw, Dendias stated that “for the Greek government and the Greek society, this issue remains open.”

“And its resolution, which is primarily a matter of principle, I think will be beneficial for all the countries involved and the EU as such,” the Greek minister added.

Dendias has upturned the reparations problem on many occasions before. In 2021, on the 77th anniversary of the Distomo massacre, in which members of the Waffen-SS murdered 228 men, women and children in the Greek village, he declared German reparation would “constitute a de facto apology for the crimes of the German occupation troops.”
