“No space for relations improvement with Turkey,” says Greek FM Dendias

“There is no space for improvement of relations between Greece and Turkey or Turkey and the European Union if it continues unlawful conduct in Cyprus,” Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias said on Thursday after a meeting with his Cypriot counterpart Nikos Christodoulides.

Dendias rushed to the island state after Turkey announced to reopen part of the ghost town Varosha in the illegally occupied North for resettlement.

In meetings with President Nicos Anastasiades and his counterpart, Athens and Lefkosia held extensive discussions on the next steps in addressing Turkish aggression and unlawful conduct.

“Henceforth, we will take steps at the United Nations and the European Council and at all international fora in full coordination. Neither Greece, nor the Republic of Cyprus, nor, we think, the United Nations and the European Council will tolerate Turkish unlawful conduct, the imposition of fait accomplis on the ground,” Dendias said in a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry.

Foreign Ministry: Turkey ‘once again distorts reality’ regarding Muslim minority

Turkey is once again “distorting reality in order to serve other purposes and certainly not …


  1. Greece does not negotiate with terrorists. This Islamic Turkey seeks to illegally expand while befriending Jihadists, the Muslim brotherhood, Hamas, etc.

    The west needs to to make enormous sacrifices to finally disengage from this dictator that plays superpowers against each other, ironically hiding behind a NATO while buying arms from its adversary and old foe.

    Let his old foe deal with him outside of NATO, why is the west so scared? The west needs to lose this emboldened criminal before it gets worst. There is less to fear from Russia than a suicidal Turkey who seeks to stir a religious war.

  2. President Lyndon B. Johnson warned Ismet Inonu that the US would leave Turkey defenseless against the Soviet Union if it invaded Cyprus in 1964. In 1974, a decade later, the barbaric opportunists illegally invaded when there were no Greek forced anywhere near the island during a coup and have illegally occupied ever since.

    Today, Turkey even buys missiles from Russia that is against western interests and is emboldened enough to exercise endless other ongoing and illegal provocations.

    When will the international community stop playing cat and mouse let alone patronize such a criminal regime that disrespects human value and international law.
