KKE: Greek Govermment’s Requests Do Not Cancel Strategic EU-Turkey Relationship

October 20, 2020

ATHENS — "From the recent euphoria and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' complete satisfaction regarding the role and decisions of the EU Summit, the government is now asking for a weapons embargo and the suspension of EU-Turkey customs union.

"What happened? Has the government only now discovered the EU's economic entanglement or the fact that its allies are the same ones that sell armaments that fuel the neighbouring country's aggression," said the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) on Tuesday, commenting on revelations that the government had sent letters to the EU, officially requesting these actions against Turkey.

"In any case, the Greek government's demands do not cancel the strategic relations of the EU and Turkey and the bargaining over many issues, including the EU-Turkey agreement on migration.

"The policy of the supporters of EuroAtlanticism moves in the same vicious circle as Greece's involvement in the imperialistic alliances, with grave danger for our people," added a KKE statement.
