Tsipras: When a Right Is Being Questioned De Facto, the Only Thing You Can Do Is Exercise It

October 16, 2020

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras on Friday said that there is no other way for Greece to defend its right to extend its territorial waters to 12 nautical miles apart from actually exercising it, in an interview to REAL FM radio.

"This it the time to exercise this right, starting from southern and eastern Crete and, depending on the developments, to proceed south of our islands in the Eastern Mediterranean, namely the islands of Kassos, Karpathos, Rhodes and the complex of Kastellorizo islands," he said, noting that the reason for this was Turkey's "strong questioning" of "the sovereign right" and its "de facto dispute with research very probably within the 12 nautical mile limit".


ATHENS – After nine other political rivals of the former ruling Radical Left SYRIZA it said were involved in an alleged bribery scandal with the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis were cleared, PASOK Member of Parliament Andreas Loverdos won't face any charges either.
