Greek Gov’t Spokesman: Turkey Must Recognize it Must Respect International Law

ATHENS – “Our country with calmness, sobriety, arguments, which are based on the Treaties, on International Law, on what is really happening in the Aegean and in our airspace, informs our partners, our allies, the international public opinion and immediately deconstructs the non-existent Turkish arguments,” government spokesperson Yiannis Economou said on Saturday in an interview with Open TV.

He pointed out that “Turkey has been, for a very long time, distorting reality, History, Treaties and International Law, in all ways. With provocative rhetoric, with non-existent claims, it insists on this tactic, which in reality shows that it does not lead anywhere.”

Economou added that the stance taken by the Greek side “has led us to succeed in broadening our reach and everyone knows that Greece is a factor of stability and a solution to the geopolitical issues – faced not only by our region, but Europe in general – and on the one hand that Turkey is a factor of the problem, it is far from respecting the obligations it must have as a NATO member state, far from respecting International Law and International Treaties.”
