Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis (l) welcomes Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades at Maximos Mansion in Athens, Wednesday, ahead of the military parade on March 25, marking 200-years since the war that resulted in Greece’s independence from the Ottoman Empire and rebirth as a nation. In his comments, Mitsotakis said Turkey ought to demonstrate it remains committed to de-escalation in the Eastern Mediterranean. “We hope that Turkey stays on European course, or it will have to face sanctions,” he said.
