KKE delegation at the European Parliament slams EU and NATO for encouraging Turkey's aggressiveness

Addressing the Plenary of the European Parliament, yesterday in Strasburg, the KKE MEP Kostas Papadakis pointed out the issue of the Turkish government's provocations which raise assertions against the sovereign rights of Greece. As MEP Papadakis mentioned, the aggressiveness of Ankara is supported by the EU and NATO. He said:

"The statements of Erdogan regarding the challenge of the Treaty of Lausanne are especially dangerous, as well as those of the Turkish Republic Party which raise non-existent sovereignty issues for 16 Greek islands. They raise questions of grey zones and borders as a continuation of a stance that nobody can underestimate: the timeless provocation, the continuous violations of the Greek sea and airspace limits, the constant challenges against Cyprus, the dispute of the Exclusive Economic Zone. 

It is proven what the alliance between Greece and Turkey means in the framework of NATO and the so-called "European borders" when the EU and NATO encourage the Turkish agressiveness in the name of the EU-Turkey agreement and the dichotomous "solution" that is promoted in Cyprus.

The fact that an EU Commissioner also raises the non-existent issue of Chams consists a proof of how dangerous the EU is and those who support her, like the SYRIZA-ANEL government, as the EU disputes borders and restores former Nazi collaborators.

The people, with their struggle, must be vigilant against all forces which either cultivate complacency or sow nationalist hate".
