A Syrian government delegation heading to peace talks in Switzerland was held up for hours in Athens after a Greek firm refused to refuel the plane they were travelling in.
Vassilis Alevizopoulos, head of Greece's Civil Aviation Workers Union, said a fuel firm had refused to refuel it because of European Union sanctions against Syria.
Syrian state television issued a terse statement saying the four-hour delay could cause foreign minister Walid al-Moualem to miss his meeting with UN chief Ban Ki-Moon. It said the plane had later resumed its flight.
