Greece is Turkey’s door towards the West, says President Pavlopoulos

Turkey’s path towards the West is through Greece, President Prokopis Pavlopoulos said on Monday, speaking to Turkey’s Greek community at an event held in Sismanoglio Mansion in Istanbul.

“Turkey must understand through its history that Greece is its window and door towards the West and we are completely honest and continue to prove it,” he said. “We have a legitimate expediency, the feasibility of peace and peaceful cohabitation, because without it we all stand to lose, nobody will win.”

Pavlopouos haied the ethos of the Greek community and called on Ankara to continue reforms.
