Communist Party Deeply Concerned Over the Developments in the Greek-Turkish Relations

January 18, 2021

ATHENS — Opposition Communist Party of Greece (KKE) representative Giorgos Marinos on Monday reiterated his party's deep concern over developments in Greek-Turkish relations after his meeting with Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, in the context of the parliamentary party briefings.

"KKE has expressed its deep concern over developments in the region and the course of Greek-Turkish relations. It considers these developments very serious and will steadily monitor them, as tension will coincide with the effort to reach a compromise solution," said Marinos.

Turkey has made it clear that it seeks a discussion on all issues and seeks to raise its unacceptable positions for the demilitarisation of the islands and grey zones in the Aegean, Marinos said.

"The USA, NATO and the EU, following a very dangerous course, are trying to pave the way for a solution involving joint exploitation of the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean," he added.

Concluding, Marinos said that the positions of the current government offer no reassurance and, for this reason, the KKE urges people to resist this attempt to dress up the exploratory talks, to be vigilant and deal sternly with any attempt to cultivate complacency.
