Kotzias: Our diplomatic responses are a stance of responsibility and not weakness

“We are a different player in the international system. Greece will defend its rights in a different way,” Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias said on Sunday in an interview with Der Spiegel magazine.

He also called on Turkey to realise that the friendly climate and the diplomatic response, even to military challenges, should not be seen as a weakness. On the contrary, it is a behavior of responsibility and strength.

Moreover, Kotzias clarified that Greece will never proceed to negotiations with Turkey on its terms.
