Greek PM Stresses Need for Agreement on a Common Framework With Turkey

ATHENS – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Sunday in an interview with international news network France 24 stressed the need for an agreement in a common framework with Turkey in order to find a way to manage the differences between the two countries with respect for international law and good neighborly relations.

He pointed out that "we are a country with confidence that defends its sovereign rights." The prime minister also referred, among other things, to the successful management of the pandemic by Greece and to the initiative of the Greek government for the Digital Certificate.

Speaking ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels on Monday, the Greek prime minister said: "I am very happy that the new President of the United States is embracing the concepts of multilateralism and an international order based on rules. And it certainly is a breath of fresh air when it comes to terms of transatlantic relations."

Regarding Greece-Turkey relations within NATO, Mitsotakis stressed that Greece has been a loyal member of the alliance for many years and added:

"We are both members of the alliance. And of course, when we have differences – as members of the alliance – these differences should be resolved in a peaceful manner, because if they are not resolved in this way and resort to higher tensions, this is of course not good for the alliance as a whole."
