Response of the Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, A. Yennimatas, to a journalist’s question concerning contemptible statements made, regarding Imia, by an advisor to the Turkish President

The Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, A. Yennimatas, stressed the following in response to a journalist’s question concerning statements made, regarding Imia, by an advisor to the Turkish President:

Contemptible statements such as these that came from the advisor to the Turkish President are foreign to European political culture. Given the position this official holds, he would do well to understand that statements like these do not contribute towards the improvement of relations between the two countries.

As we have said before, one’s actions reflect on oneself.

Moreover, we remind him that the legal status of the Aegean is clear and established by international law. From what we gather, the gentleman in question could hardly be studious.
