The European Union should impose “significant sanctions” on Turkey if Ankara does not withdraw its forces from the disputed part of the eastern Mediterranean, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said today.
We need dialogue, but not in a stressed position. What threatens the security and stability of my country threatens the well-being of all members of the European Union – said the Greek Prime Minister.
European leaders should decide this month how to respond to Turkey. If Turkey does not withdraw its presence, “significant sanctions” should be imposed on it, the Greek prime minister stressed.
They must stand on the ball, return to the negotiating table and start from the point when they left the negotiations in 2016. If we do not agree, then we must seek a solution in The Hague – he stressed, referring to the international court for resolving disputes between states.
