FM Dendias in Cyprus: No room for improvement in Turkey's relations with Greece, EU

Turkish aggressiveness "cannot go unanswered," said Foreign Affairs Minister after his meeting with his Cyprus counterpart Nikos Christodoulides at Foreign Ministry in Nicosia on Wednesday.

Greece's answer, noted Dendias, "will be based on International Law, as it always does."

Commenting on Turkey's most recent actions concerning the Varosha enclave and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's announcements from Cyprus' occupied territories, the Greek minister underlined that his presence in Nicosia symbolizes Greece's commitment to stand by the Cyprus Republic's government and people.

Turkey has committed a gravely illegal action at Varosha, he noted, which confirms Turkey's intentions "to extend its occupation of Cyprus and establish a neo-Ottoman rule in the broader Eastern Mediterranean region." The illegal military bases in the occupied areas of northern Cyprus are also a particularly worrying development, highlighted Dendias.

"We are spelling this out clearly," Dendias said, "there is no room for improvement in Turkey's relations with Greece, and there is no room for improvement in Turkey's relations with the European Union, as long as Turkey continues to act illegally on Cyprus. These after all are not our words: they are included in the European Council's conclusions."
