Doorstep statement by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis upon arrival at the second day of the Special European Council

The European Union sent yesterday a message of unity, solidarity and determination. It made clear with absolute certainty that the cessation of any unilateral action is a precondition for improvement of the relations between the European Union and Turkey, and this is something we all desire.

It also made abundantly clear the consequences that will occur should Turkey continue its aggressive behavior. Greece is absolutely satisfied by the results of the Summit and we are looking forward to the resumption, as soon as possible, of the exploratory talks, to which both sides have committed themselves.
