Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitchells said Tuesday (14 June) that Turkey’s questioning of Greece’s sovereignty over the Aegean islands was “absurd” and made it difficult for any talks between them.

“Turkey’s objections, in the latest UN letters, are absolutely absurd because they raise questions about Greece’s sovereignty over its island,” Mitsotakis stated in a preview interview that will be broadcast by state TV ERT later Tuesday. “We can’t have any discussion about the absurd.”

Os aliados da OTAN, Turquía e Grecia, levan anos enfrontados por cuestións que van desde as fronteiras marítimas e as reclamacións sobre as súas plataformas continentais en Europa ata o espazo aéreo, os migrantes e o Chipre, dividido étnicamente.

Tensions flared again recently with Erdogan stating that Greece should cease arming the Aegean Islands that have a demilitarised state and follow international agreements. Ankara claims that the Aegean Islands were granted to Greece under the 1923 Lausanne treaties and the 1947 Paris treaties, provided it doesn’t arm them.

Athens stated that Turkey’s comments about arming the islands were unfounded. Both countries sent letters to United Nations describing their differing positions on islands and airspace.

Last month, Turkish President Tayyip Erdan said Mitsotakis “no more exists” for him. He also accused the Greek leader of trying block sales of F-16 fighter planes to Turkey while he was visiting the United States.

Mitsotakis afirmou que os líderes, sen dúbida, reuniranse nalgún momento e que deberían seguir falando entre eles.

Mitsotakis stated, “We must meet together and we have to discuss…we need to be able agree that we disagree, but we need agree on the framework to solve our differences.”

O secretario xeral da OTAN, Jens Stoltenberg, instou a Turquía e Grecia a absterse de calquera retórica ou acción que poida agravar a crise.

In an interview with the semi-state Athens News Agency, he stated that “At a moment when (Russian President Vladimir Putin’s) war in Ukraine has shattered Europe’s peace, it is even more essential for allies to stand united.”

Despois dun parón de cinco anos, Grecia e Turquía iniciaron conversacións bilaterais en 2021 para mellorar os seus lazos. Non obstante, non avanzaron moito. Erdogan declarou a semana pasada que Turquía suspendería todas as conversacións bilaterais.
