Pavlopoulos sends message to Turkey to respect international law

President Prokopios Pavlopoulos sent message to Turkey on Tuesday that it should respect international law and the European acquis.

Pavlopoulos was visiting the island of Symi for the celebrations of the 73rd anniversary of the Dodecanese islands concession to the allies.

The Greek president pointed out that it should be made clear to all sides that “there are no gray zones in the Aegean and especially in the Dodecanese.”

The borders of Greece are also borders of the European Union, he stressed in his speech, during his proclamation as an honorary citizen of Symi.

Pavlopoulos noted that the status of the final concession of the Dodecanese in Greece is governed by the provisions of the Paris Peace Treaty (April 1947) between the allies, the victors of the Second World War and Italy.
