The Agreement Is Dead Because Turkey Has Decided to Violate It, Greek PM Mitsotakis Tells CNN (Vid)

March 8, 2020

ATHENS – “Right now, let’s be honest, the agreement is dead,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in an interview with CNN released late on Friday.

“And it’s dead because Turkey has decided to completely violate the agreement because of what happened in Syria,” he added.

“Europe is not going to be blackmailed by Turkey. We are not the ones escalating this conflict, but we have every right to protect our sovereign borders. And we will continue to do so,” Mitsotakis underlined.

Asked about the economic repercussions of the spread of the coronavirus, Mitsotakis said it was important to consider how fiscal policy can help us alleviate the pressures on growth that will inevitably occur as a result of this outbreak.
