Gennimata urges PM Mitsotakis to reject draft text of EC conclusions on Turkey

Movement For Change (KINAL) party leader Fofi Gennimata on Thursday called on Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to reject the draft text of the European Council’s conclusions on Turkey, while the EU summit of state leaders is underway in Brussels until Friday.

She stressed that the draft text does not foresee any sanctions against Turkey and that it is even more lenient than the conclusions reached at the October EC conference; moreover, it also postpones any substantial discussion of the issue to March 2021, she pointed out.

“This tactic essentially gives way to Turkish aggression (…) and affects vital interests of both Greece and Cyprus, therefore “Greece must unequivocally reject this plan.”
