Dendias: Greece keeping all communication channels with Turkey open

Greece keeps all communications channels with Turkey open, but the current communication level “is not optimal by far,” Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias said in an interview to Real News on Sunday.
“Greece is prepared for any eventuality and responds to challenges with self-confidence,” he added, noting that it will continue working on the extension of the fence at the border with Turkey in the Evros prefecture.

Asked what will happen if its neighbor follows up on its threats and start drilling off the south of the island of Crete, Dendias said that Turkey’s warmongering policy will not work. “The Foreign Ministry has strengthened Greece’s diplomatic armory with the support mainly of the EU, but of a series of friendly countries as well, both on bilateral and on trilateral and multilateral levels of collaboration,” he underlined.
