Varvitsiotis: The Resumption of Exploratory Contacts Is a Good Step

January 27, 2021

ATHENS — "The resumption of exploratory contacts is a good step," Deputy Foreign Minister Miltiadis Varvitsiotis said in an interview with Skai TV. "Turkey has shown a willingness to change course, but it must show that this attitude and behaviour are characterized by stability, duration and consistency," he said.

In particular, Varvitsiotis said that the threat of sanctions and the fact that two summits – in October amd December – have already been held and one will take place in March led Turkey to change its stance.

He also noted that the Greek side welcomes this change of stance and the fact that Oruc Reis refrains from provocations in the Southeastern Mediterranean, adding that "the rhetoric on the part of Ankara is a rhetoric that tries to appease the Europeans and show that it is in the mood for good cooperation. The issue is to have a duration."
