Varvitsiotis to Bloomberg: Greece Will Do Whatever It Takes to Protect Sovereignty

ATHENS — Greece will do whatever it takes to protect its sovereignty, Alternate Foreign Minister Miltiades Varvitsiotis said in an interview with Bloomberg.

"If the only difference we have is on the proclamation of an exclusive economic zone, then we are ready to negotiate and sit at the table with Turkey and discuss the issue," Varvitsiotis said in an interview with the news agency.

"Greece is also willing to discuss bilateral issues such as the economy, tourism, Covid-19 and migratory flows," he said.

"But if the issue is to contest Greek sovereignty over islands in the Aegean sea, then the response is no," the minister added to Bloomberg. "We are not discussing our sovereignty, we are not giving away Greek soil and we will do whatever it takes to defend it."
