Androulakis: Next EU Summit on Turkey Must Decide on a “Stick”, as Well as a “Carrot”

January 20, 2021

BRUSSELS — In addition to the "carrot", there must also be a "stick" in the conclusions of the next European Council on EU-Turkey relations, opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) MEP Nikos Androulakis said in a statement issued on Wednesday during the debate on the common foreign and defence policy in the Plenary Session of the European Parliament.

The Greek MEP pointed to Turkey's destabilising actions in Nagorno-Karabakh, Syria and Libya, as well as its repeated violations of the sovereign rights of two EU member-states, Cyprus and Greece. He then asked EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell why "arms sales from European countries to Turkey should continue, when even the United States are stopping [them]."


ATHENS - The rising PASOK-KINAL Socialist party has taken over second place in another survey, supplanting the declining SYRIZA as Greece’s major opposition party behind the ruling New Democracy.
