Partners, not neutral mediators

Greece is a border of Europe, and any threat against it – whether that be a military threat or the weaponization of the refugee crisis – is a threat against Europe.

This is why any partners taking diplomatic initiatives cannot act as though they are simply neutral mediators in a dispute that does not concern them directly.

A policy of equal distances cannot apply when it comes to relations between Athens and Ankara, as Greece is a major geopolitical bulwark for Europe.

By maintaining such a neutral stance, Greece’s partners are also sending the wrong message to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
