KKE: Results of EU Summit Again Fell Short of the Expectations

ATHENS — "The results of the European Council with respect to Greek-Turkish relations and the Cyprus issue again fell short of the expectations that were cultivated by the government and the other parties of the Euro-Atlantism. They proved that the criteria for the EU's stance are the interests of European monopolies and the strategic relations with the Turkish bourgeoisie," the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) underlined in an announcement on Friday.

"This is demonstrated by the decision for the promotion of the so-called 'positive agenda' of the EU-Turkey Customs Union and the continuation of the EU-Turkey agreement on migration that has led to the trapping of thousands of refugees on the Greek islands," added KKE.

The long-term occupation of Cyprus continues and a partition solution is being prepared. The Turkish claims remain and the bargaining over unacceptable compromises and joint exploitation of the Aegean and in the Eastern Mediterranean is intensifying. The real facts reaffirm that, in the context of the bourgeoisie's competition and the intervention of the US , NATO and EU, solutions in the interest of the Greeks and the other peoples can't be found," concluded KKE.


ANKARA — Former US Sen Jeff Flake formally stepped into his new position as US ambassador to Turkey on Wednesday, after presenting his credentials to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
