Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis sent a message to Turkey that the only way to delimit maritime zones is a common framework of rules, namely International Law and the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, during his speech at the 76th UN General Assembly.
Mr. Mitsotakis pointed out that Greece always seeks open channels of communication and cooperation with Turkey, but the tension of the summer of 2020, when Ankara increased the tensions for no reason and proceeded to challenges, should not be repeated.
At the same time, he noted that Turkey should understand that aggression undermines the margins for regional security and stability and makes Turkey's relationship with Europe much more complicated.
Mr. Mitsotakis also referred to the pandemic, noting that "if these events taught us anything, it is that hope is born from cooperation." He emphasized that Europe had taken the lead on many fronts, including vaccine donations to non-EU countries, and agreed on a Recovery Fund, as well as the development of a European Digital Certificate.
Referring to the other big challenge concerning the climate, Mr. Mitsotakis stressed that "we are no longer talking about climate change, the issue is to deal with an acute climate crisis."
Earlier, the Prime Minister met with the Archbishop of America Elpidoforos at the UN offices in New York.
Immediately after the meeting, a top government source said that "the issue is over" and added that "what matters is the unity of Hellenism, Greece's inseparable relationship with the Archdiocese of America and the Archdiocese's close relations with its flock."
It is recalled that the presence of the American Archbishop Elpidoforos at the inauguration of the "Turkish Center" in New York, which took place in the presence of Tayyip Erdogan and the Turkish Cypriot leader of the pseudo-state, Ersin Tatar, provoked reactions.
Mr. Mitsotakis also met with the CEO of Pfizer, Albert Bourlas.
