Cavusoglu: “Greeks’ faits accomplis do not cause Turkey to shift from its positions over the Aegean”

In an interview with the DHA news agency, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlout Cavusoglu said that “the Greek side’s attempt to create faits accomplis will not change Turkey’s positions nor will they change the fact that there Aegean issues.”

The Turkish Minister calls on Greece to behave in a peaceful way and stresses that “We expect that provocations will be avoided. We hope that Greece will behave in the context of good neighbourliness.”

Journalist Sefa Karakahasan said there was a statement by a Greek politician that “in an hour they are going to Ankara”. Cavusoglu stressed that “I am not aware of the comment that you actually refer to, however, the flight between the two Aegean coasts lasts only a few minutes.”

Turkey’s Foreign Minister also sends a message that Turkey looks forward to a lower profile situation in the Aegean. “We want peace and co-operation to dominate the Aegean. So, we have to see how we will solve our problems in a sustainable and fair manner and not with meaningless and unfounded comments.”… / IBNA
