Dr. Dokos subject was the “Greek foreign policy challenges and choices within a deteriorating Security Environment” emphasized the higher degree of conflict rising between Greece and Turkey which could have significant consequences not only on the two countries but in the region generally and reflected on the continuing clashing of even simplistic aspects of coastline borders which remain to date a serious point of contention.
