Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in an interview that is published today in the French newspaper “Le Figaro”, sent a new message to Turkey. Describing the prospect of launching exploratory contacts as an encouraging step, the Prime Minister notes that Greece and the EU want to improve relations with Turkey, which, however, presupposes compliance with the rules.
“There are two paths to choose: that of dialogue and diplomacy; a dialogue that respects the international law without unilateral action and the rules of good neighborliness. The second path leads to escalation and tension, which will inevitably result in Europe taking action against Turkey. “Greece has already proven that it believes in the first path”, emphasizes the prime minister in his interview.
At the same time, he spoke warmly about Emanuel Macron’s strong and practical support to Greece. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank President Emmanuel Macron for his continued and strong support, both in words and in practice. As you know, Greece and France are traditional allies, strategic partners, and I personally consider the President of the French Republic one of the driving forces behind European solidarity and the renewal of our ‘Union’,” he pointed out.
