Defence Min Kammenos: Common national line against Turkey’s provocation

Defence Minister Panos Kammenos on Wednesday insisted on the establishment of a common national position against Turkish provocations, in an address to the parliament, and characterised Tuesday’s Turkish Foreign Ministry announcement a result of “delirium”.

Kammenos underlined that the prime minister is responsible for drawing a national line, and urged all deputies to express support for the Greek Foreign Ministry’s announcement on Imia.

“I call on you to express your support for the position of the Greek Foreign Ministry issued on Tuesday that responds to Turkish provocation and comprises a national position clarifying that Greek sovereignty is explicitly and clearly set out in the international treaties, so we may send a strong message of national policy abroad”, Kammenos told MPs.
