EU’s Borrell: Turkey’s Behavior Leading to Tension Escalation

October 12, 2020

BRUSSELS — A new Navtex issued by Turkey "which affects Greece" is disappointing, High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said on Monday, following the conclusion of the EU Council of Foreign Affairs Ministers, adding that these actions lead to escalation of tension.

He said that he had been briefed by his Greek and Cypriot colleagues about recent events and noted that the opening of Varosha undermines common trust. Turkey must change its negative behavior, he said, instead of leading to escalation of tension.

European Union foreign ministers were weighing Monday whether to impose sanctions on Russian officials and organizations blamed for the poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny with a Soviet-era nerve agent.
