Greek Prime Minister Mitsotakis, in his speech at the US Congress, made allegations that Ankara took a provocative stance by targeting Turkey and that Turkey violated Greek airspace. Miçotakis, who finished his speech, received a standing ovation for minutes.
Greek Prime Minister Kiryakos Mitsotakis made statements at the joint session of the US Congress after meeting with US President Joe Biden at the White House. Targeting Turkey without giving a name in his speech, Miçotakis drew attention to being applauded for minutes by the congress members.
Mitsotakis said that he is happy to be in Washington in honor of the 201st anniversary of relations between the USA and Greece. Explaining that the relations between the two countries are shaped by defense, economy and trade, Miçotakis praised the military elements of the USA in the Greek islands.
WE WILL NOT ACCEPT TWO-STATE SOLUTION
Stating that “they will never accept a two-state solution on the island of Cyprus”, Mitsotakis claimed that Turkey had violated Greek airspace without giving names, and asked the US Congress to consider the situation in the Eastern Mediterranean in the possible arms sales to Turkey.
UKRAINE, A SOVEREIGN AND INDEPENDENT STATE
Noting that Russia’s attack on Ukraine was wrong, and therefore reacting to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Greek Prime Minister stated that he believed that “Ukraine will continue to exist as a sovereign and independent state”.
Meeting with US President Joe Biden yesterday, Mitsotakis also attended the reception given for the 201st anniversary of relations between the two countries.
