Dendias Tweet to Cavusoglu: “One Thing You Have Forgotten Again…it’s Int’l Law”

December 21, 2020

ATHENS — Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, in a series of tweets addressed to his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu on Monday, wished that 2021 will be a year in which Turkey abandons its threat of war on Greece, becomes more European and avoids provocations and illegal activities. Replying to an earlier tweet in a similar vein addressed to him by Cavusoglu, Dendias also noted that his Turkish counterpart had once again forgotten to mention international law, which he said was "the only basis for a constructive dialogue" between the two countries.

The foreign minister's tweets were as follows:

"Thank you my dear friend Mevlut. As we exchange wishes and advice, may 2021 be the year of the three “A”s for Turkey to:

1. Abandon its threats of war against Greece should we exercise our legitimate rights. After all we live in the 21st century.

2. Aspire to become more European. Less Neo-Ottoman. This will best serve the Turkish people.

3. Abstain from provocations and illegal activities.

By the way. There is one thing Mevlut you forgot to mention yet again: it’s International Law. The only basis for a constructive dialogue about our difference, my dear friend. Happy 2021!"


ATHENS - Turkey’s tactics to get the upper hand in its claims to Greek territories after repeatedly sending fighter jets over Greek islands and waters is to claim that Greece is violating Turkish airspace.
