Dendias: Greece is facing escalating misconduct from a non-EU country

Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias in a Wednesday video conference stressed to New Democracy party MEPs that “our EU partners need to understand that Greece, an EU member state, is facing escalating misconduct as well as an attempt by a non-EU country to usurp its sovereign rights, a country which is, in fact, a candidate for EU membership.”

The minister was also himself briefed by the Head of New Democracy’s Euro-deputies and Vice-Chairman of the European People’s Party (E.P.P.) Parliamentary Group Vangelis Meimarakis, whose initiative as an EPP official ensured that the issue of Turkish provocations was introduced in the plenary session of the European Parliament, “where all the dimensions of the problem were highlighted,” reads a ministry statement.
