Greece fully aligns itself with the European Union’s position, condemns Turkey’s new unilateral military action on a sovereign state’s territory and calls on Turkey to immediately put an end to its military operations in northeast Syria. Operations that are in violation of international law, undermine the stability of the area and jeopardise the United Nation’s effort to resolve the Syrian crisis.
Forced population resettlements on Syrian soil and the forceful alteration of local demographic reality are in straight violation of international law and stir up painful memories.
Turkey shall be held liable before the international community for the potential humanitarian consequences of its operations in Syria.
We underline that a viable solution for the Syrian dispute cannot be reached with military means.
