Turkish Provocations in the Aegean to Be Discussed in the EU Foreign Affairs Council

ATHENS — Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias is in Paris on Monday, where he will meet with his French counterpart Jean Yves Le Drian.

Talks are expected to focus on bilateral, European and regional issues, with an emphasis on developments in the eastern Mediterranean, on further tackling the coronavirus pandemic and on attracting investments, while the migration crisis and the European prospects of the Western Balkans will also be discussed, says a ministry statement.

Dendias and Le Drian will then both join a video conference with the EU Foreign Affairs Council. The Foreign Ministers of the EU member states are also scheduled to hold a remote e-meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on transatlantic cooperation as well as the issue of Turkish provocative actions in the Aegean and the southeastern Mediterranean, at the request of Greece.

Finally, the foreign affairs ministers will discuss preparatory work ahead of the Partnership Conference for Sudan, which will take place on June 25.
