Greece will offer to assume command of the European Mission in the Red Sea, Defence Minister Nikos Dendias announced on Wednesday in Brussels.
Upon his arrival at the unofficial EU Defence Ministers Council in Brussels, Dendias stated :
“Today we will discuss, apart from Ukraine, the European Defence Industry, something that Greece is particularly interested in. On the one hand, in order to see what opportunities there are for strengthening the Hellenic Defence Industry, but also to examine what compatabilities can be created for the Greek Defence Innovation System, which we are trying to create. Additionally, we will discuss the European Mission in the Red Sea and I will propose, I will offer, that Greece assume command of the operation and also offer the Larissa Headquarters as the Mission’s headquarters”.
