Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias gave an interview to the Kathimerini daily in his country. Assessing the sea-oriented conflicts with Turkey in his remarks, the Greek Foreign Minister said the Greek side will take a constructive approach in exploratory talks with the Turkish government, which are expected to begin.
Nikos Dendias, who said that the Greek side will take a constructive approach in the exploratory talks that are expected to begin with the Turkish government, claimed that Turkey, which took steps to join the European Union in the 2000s and ceased to be the last exploratory talks in 2016, is now pursuing an expansionist, new Ottoman and threatening policy.
"Ankara's unilateral change of the agenda of the talks will mean an attempt to undermine it, and one side will not be able to decide on a new change in course on its own. Turkey is neither the country of the early 2000s that took steps to join the European Union, nor the country in 2016, when exploratory talks were interrupted. In recent years, the Turkish government has been pursuing an expansionist, new Ottoman and threatening policy."
