Tsipras in Thrace: convergence of the National Council on Foreign Policy and extending sanctions against Turkey

After Georgios Katrougalos, now Alexis Tsipras has also called for the convergence of the National Council on Foreign Policy. The SYRIZA leader during his trip in Alexandroupolis met with mayors from Thrace.

Speaking in front of the cameras, he further underlined that the sanctions against Turkey for its illegal activity within the EEZ of Cyprus should be extended to the activity of Ankara south of Crete.

“It from here, in Alexandroupolis, that we have to send the message that respect for international law comprises a prerequisite for good neighborliness. Turkey must stop this escalation of tension and its unlawful activity”, the former Prime Minister stressed, adding: “unilateral action in consultation with the current Libyan government to proceed to a non-existent agreement beyond any meaning of international law is indicative of a provocative behavior that will only engender negative effects in the near future”. /ibna
