Greece warns Turkey against "aggression"

(MENAFN) On Wednesday, Greek president Prokopis Pavlopoulos warned that as Turkey disputed his country's territorial integrity over the eastern Aegean Imia islets, Ankara's behavior was putting the country's European Union membership ambitions at stake.

"We always want to have the best possible ties, we favor [Turkey's] European prospects but this presupposes respect for the borders of the European Union as well as Greece," Pavlopoulos said during a meeting with Estonian Defense Minister Juri Luik in Athens.

"We are not willing to make any concessions on this," he said.
