  • [01] Greece will not give Turkey pretext to cause problems for Cyprus' EU entry

    03/11/2002 22:26:06

    Greek Defence Minister Yiannos Papantoniou on Saturday termed as unacceptable ''the continuing Turkish provocation in the Aegean.''

    Speaking from Rhodes where earlier in the day he opened a seminar entitled ''Mediterranean Dimension of the European Security and Defence Policy'', Papantoniou reiterated that ''Greece reacts with calm and firmness'' to the infringements of the Athens Flight Information Region (FIR) and to the violations of the country's national air space by Turkish warplanes, because ''we do not want to give any pretext to the neighbour to cause problems in Cyprus' EU accession course.''

    He said ''we are firm and remain firm, but we are also ready for every eventuality,'' adding that ''for this reason the Greek Armed Forces are on an exceptionally high level of alert.''

    Papantoniou also clarified that the issue of Cyprus' EU accession was completely separate to that of the European Army issue.
