Mitsotakis: Greece Prepared to Take Its Difference with Turkey to the International Court

BRUSSELS — Greece is prepared to refer its difference with Turkey to the International Court of Justice at The Hague, if the two sides are unable to reach an agreement, and to accept the ruling of the court, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis reiterated, during the post-summit press conference on Friday. "I hope that at some point these discussions will bring a tangible result," he said.

Concerning the second day of the Summit, he said the EU leaders had dedicated three hours to the issue of Covid. "There is concern, Greece is still doing better than other countries. There is extreme concern on all sides about how we can keep our economies open while containing the virus and how we can have better cooperation," he said.

"Another issue is the vaccines, where the EU has made significant progress. There are also other sectors in which we can achieve a better cooperation framework. One of them concerns trips within the EU. And we also have a new tool at our disposal, which are none other than the reliable 'rapid' tests," Mitsotakis noted, saying this could be used to make travel easier.

"Finally, we also discussed Brexit, which is an issue on the next EU Summit's agenda," he said.


Alexandros Kachrimanis is the Regional Governor of Epirus, one of Greece’s most important and beautiful – but perhaps least known regions.
