Speaking within the scope of the 76th General Assembly of the United Nations, Greek Prime Minister Kiryakos Mitsotakis stated that he would make every effort to seek cooperation with Turkey.
Commenting on the tension between Turkey and Greece for more than a year, Mitsotakis said that Greece always wants to keep the channels of dialogue with Turkey open, and that they do not want the tension between the two countries to recur in 2020.
“GREECE HAS FACED THE THREAT OF USE OF FORCE SINCE 1995.”
Mitsotakis stated that Greece will continue to protect its sovereign rights and claimed that Greece has faced the threat of using of force since 1995 due to the “casus belli” decision taken by Turkey.
Arguing that by cooperating with Turkey, it is possible to fight new common enemies together, Mitsotakis noted that cooperation can be made with Turkey on the climate crisis and refugee problem. Expressing that history and geography connect the two countries, Mitsotakis said: “I will not spare any effort to continue the search for cooperation with Turkey.”
