Replying to a journalist’s question regarding comments made by the Spokesperson of the turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Kotzias’, interview on “Alpha” Channel, the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Alexandros Yennimatas, stated:

“Turkey systematically violates international law and continuously crosses red lines. And, when called back to order, it complains and reacts as if it were detached from the reality Turkey itself has created.

Greece is a country that acts soberly, responsibly and peacefully. And this is an element of its strength. It insists on solving differences peacefully and through dialogue, in a manner consistent with contemporary European political culture, which Turkey ought to adopt. What is more, it must respect international law and the law of the sea”.
