CNA/Adamos Zachariadis - Greece/Cyprus 10/06/2019 17:45


Greek Foreign Minister Giorgos Katrougalos said that Turkey’s provocative actions in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and the Aegean are creating tension in the region. However, he estimated that Turkey is not aiming to provoke a “hot" incident in the Aegean.

In an interview on the Greek radio station “Real FM”, Minister Katrougalos said that the accumulation of tension, produced by Turkey’s provocative actions, raises the possibility for an accident in the Aegean.
