But our conclusion is that after the conclusions of October 2, Turkey decided to continue with the same methods and, therefore reaffirmed our support to Cyprus and Greece, and our intentions not to give in the least in the face of these provocations.

We will return to this issue with decisions in the coming months, depending on the developments of Turkey’s behaviour.

Macron also added that the EU continues to seek a ceasefire as soon as possible in the conflicts between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
