Weber: We Will Do Everything to Help Greece Protect Its Borders

BRUSSELS — "The problems with Turkey are not bilateral, they are European," the head of the EPP parliamentary group, Manfred Weber, sain in a statement to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA), stressing that "Greece's borders – land, sea and air borders – are Europe's borders."

Weber added: "We will do everything to help Greece protect these borders."

Moreover, he stressed that Erdogan's provocative behavior is against the EU and does not respect international law, European principles and values. That is why the presence of high-ranking officials in Evros, on the border with Turkey, is a clear response to the Erdogan government, sending the message that Europe is not threatened and will protect its borders, he noted.

He also called on Turkey to respect international law on the sea, which recognizes the continental shelf of the islands.

Weber also called for coordinated European action, stressing that Erdogan's behavior must be addressed in a coordinated and immediate manner, while stating that the EU is an example of international legitimacy respecting institutional structures.
