President Sakellaropoulou Receives FM Dendias

ATHENS — President of the Hellenic Republic, Katerina Sakellaropoulou, on Monday received Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, who briefed her on the latest developments in Greek-Turkish relations, as well as the trilateral meeting between the foreign ministers of Greece, Cyprus and Lebanon.

They also discussed the situation in the Western Balkans, but also the forthcoming five-party Geneva Conference on the Cyprus issue.

Dendias on Monday stressed the need for Turkey to reach an agreement with neighbouring countries regarding the under-construction nuclear power plant in Akuyu.

Dendias made the statement in a Twitter post on his personal account, on the 35th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident.

"The Chernobyl disaster, the biggest nuclear accident in history, is a constant reminder of the dangers that lurk today as well," Dendias said. "As I have pointed out, Turkey must negotiate with neighbouring countries for the nuclear power plant under construction in Akuyu," he added.


ANKARA - Turkey's swiveling between offering diplomacy or gunboats and demands that Greece take troops off its islands near Turkey's coast is roiling the waters between the countries and plans to hunt for energy.
