Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Cavusoglu decided to give “friendly advice” to his Greek counterpart, Nikos Dendias.

Cavusoglu responded to a tweet from the Greek minister and urged him to stop asking for help from third parties, “injuring the dignity of the Greek people”.

“Dear Niko, here’s some friendly advice for the new year – stop asking for help from others and injuring the Greek people’s dignity. May 2021 be the year when we settle our differences equitably by talking directly, sincerely, and earnestly.” wrote specifically the Turkish Foreign Minister.

Today, the Greek minister responded to Cavusoglu’s tweet by writing:

“Thank you my dear friend Mevlut. As we exchange wishes and advice, may 2021 be the year of the three “A”s for Turkey to: 1. Abandon its threats of war against Greece should we exercise our legitimate rights. After all we live in the 21st century.

2. Aspire to become more European. Less Neo-Ottoman. This will best serve the Turkish people.

3. Abstain from provocations and illegal activities.

By the way. There is one thing Mevlut you forgot to mention yet again: it’s International Law. The only basis for a constructive dialogue about our difference, my dear friend. Happy 2021!”

In an interview this weekend, Nikos Dendias said that the main condition for the resumption of exploratory talks between the two countries “is for Turkey to prove that it wants a constructive dialogue based on international law, as a permanent choice, not as a flag of opportunity.”

The minister stressed that “We will not be trapped by pretentious moves. This stance, after the position of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, was adopted by the recent European Council “, adding that the enlargement of the agenda that Ankara wants will not be accepted.
