Mitsotakis to raise problem of Turkish provocations at NATO Summit

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is expected to raise the issue of Turkish provocativeness at the NATO Summit on Tuesday and Wednesday.
He said that he will refer to Turkey's provocations and ask the Alliance to adopt a position. "An alliance cannot be indifferent when one member is openly violating international law and thus turning against another member. An equal-distances approach is unfair to Greece, which has never sought to stoke tensions in our region."
The prime minister has already indicated that Greece "knows how to defend its rights with confidence, calmness and efficiency."
In this context, Kyriakos Mitsotakis will meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on December 4, 2019 (14:30 London time) on the sidelines of the NATO Summit, at the request of the Turkish side.
Speaking to his associates, the prime minister stressed: "I will put to President Erdogan all the issues of Turkish provocativeness. We will put our cards on the table. And it is in Turkey's best interest to double back, away from provocative actions."
