Angry Cavusoglu: "I did not make provocative statements" - Dendias: "You are threatening our islands, that is why we have the army there"
The initiative of the unpredictable president of Turkey to talk to Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias is considered a highly symbolic move
Real gentlemen, right?...
...as long as no events have occurred in the meantime that would render his talks with the Turkish FM counterproductive & unnecessary
The Turkish Foreign Minister said Greece was violating human rights laws
Mr. Cavusoglu had called on the Greek FM to stop asking for help from others "insulting the Greek people’s dignity"
Earlier, the Greek FM Dendias spoke on the phone with his Turkish FM Cavusoglu as did the director of the Greek PM's diplomatic office with the Turkish President's adviser
The Swedish diplomat called on Turkey to stop violating Cyprus's sovereign rights
This move comes as Athens and Ankara seem to have agreed to start again the exploratory talks
He said it is not possible for an island of 10 square kilometers to give Greece a continental shelf and an Exclusive Economic Zone
