Greece’s first participation in the ministerial conference on Libya
Nikos Dendias had the opportunity to inform his European counterparts about the latest episode of Turkish delinquency during the meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the European Union.
According to diplomatic sources, the Greek minister presented a map with the presence of Turkish warships, which are located just ten miles off the east coast of Crete, in order to visualize the magnitude of the challenge and the absurdity of Turkish behavior.
Interpreting this new escalation of Turkish delinquency, diplomatic sources estimated that Ankara considers that it has acquired a new political capital that allows it to move in this direction due to its role in Afghanistan.
They said, however, that this was a misconception and recalled that US President Joe Biden refused to grant President Recep Tayyip Erdogan a meeting at the UN General Assembly, while the US Secretary of State called for the removal of the Turkish troops.
Greece's first participation in the conference on Libya
Nikos Dendias had the opportunity to thoroughly analyze the latest developments in Libya with his Algerian counterpart. Regarding the elections scheduled for next December, the Greek side clarified that it considers the total removal of foreign troops and mercenaries as a basic condition for holding fair elections.
In addition, diplomatic sources estimated that an important development that took place at the UN General Assembly is the fact that Germany accepted the participation of Greece as an observer country in the Ministerial Conference on Libya. This was taken as a positive step and it is estimated that our country will be able to participate more actively in these diplomatic processes in the near future.
