Greek PM asks EU Council President Tusk for condemnation of Turkey’s illegal actions

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday spoke with the President of the European Council Donald Tusk on the telephone, according to a press release from the prime minister’s office.

The prime minister called on the European Council, which will meet on June 20-21, to unequivocally condemn Turkey’s illegal actions in the Cypriot Exclusive Economic Zone.

In addition, the prime minister stressed that the European Council should consider specific measures against those involved in illegal activities, as Turkey insists on violating international law.
