EuroMP Kefalogiannis: Release of pastor Brunson a positive sample from Turkey

“We hope and await from the Turkish president to also surprise us positively in the future,” said New Democracy Eurodeputy MP Manolis Kefalogiannis in his statement to the joint EU-Turkey parliamentary committee after the release of the American pastor Andrew Brunson.

“Today’s release and return home of the American pastor Andrew Brunson from the Turkish jails is of course a second positive sample of Turkey’s political leadership,” he added, referring to the recent release of the two Greek soldiers.

“We insist on our fixed position that we desire a democratic and European Turkey that will be a factor of security and stability in the south eastern Mediterranean region,” he added.
