CNA/Adamos Zachariadis - Greece/Athens 24/06/2019 17:50

Greek Foreign Minister George Katrougalos said that the European Council’s decisions regarding Turkey’s illegal actions in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) constitute an important diplomatic victory on the part of Greece and Cyprus.

In an interview with CNA, Katrougalos underlined that the European Council’s decisions provide for the first time concrete targeted measures against Turkey, worded in stronger terms than the decisions of the General Affairs Council of the EU.

“For the first time, the European Union is progressing from moves to deeds, and the message has been received by Turkey”, Katrougalos said.
