Ministry of Foreign Affairs announcement regarding claims made by the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Friday, 03 November 2017

It would be good if Turkey would finally decide –and we hope it will do so– to conduct itself on the basis of international legality and the principles of good neighbourly relations.

Like every other sovereign state, Greece considers self-evident the right to take the necessary measures for the effective defence of its sovereignty and territorial integrity, based on the provisions of the Charter of the United Nations.

Finally, we remind our neighbouring country that it is not a signatory to, and thus derives no right from, the 1947 Paris Peace Treaty.
