Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias expresses the belief that a solution to the Greek-Turkish dispute would be absolutely possible if Turkey accepted the International Law of the Sea and the related Convention (UNCLOS).
In an interview with Kathimerini Sunday edition, Dendias said that “a solution, which would be absolutely possible to achieve, if Turkey accepted the International Law of the Sea and the related Convention (UNCLOS),”
The Greek FM pointed out to the two agreements delimiting the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) with Italy and Egypt, recalling that “we have been unable to reach for 50 years in a row.”
Dendias’ statements come amid an escalation of Turkish rhetoric with ongoing threats against Greece, while president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been insisting of cutting any contacts with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
In a U-turn on Friday, however, a close aide of Erdogan said that the two leaders could have a meeting in Prague beginning of October if the Greek PM would do a “gesture.”
