The government’s attempt to cultivate a climate of complacency, talking about “breaking the ice” and a temporary “calm” in view of the summer, should not hide those factors that fuel new major risks in Greek-Turkish relations. “These dangers stem from the rivalries of the bourgeoisie, their bargaining at the expense of sovereign rights, but also the pursuit of weapons that lead to the economic bleeding of the peoples,” the KKE said in a comment on the Mitsotakis-Erdogan meeting on the sidelines of the summit. of NATO.
“Much more, it is unrealistic to claim that strengthening the cohesion of NATO’s southeastern wing, in the context of which the Mitsotaki-Erdogan meeting took place, will benefit peace in the region and the country’s sovereign rights. The truth is that this goal serves NATO’s aggressive plans in the region, in which the governments of Greece and Turkey actively participate and is accompanied by solutions for the co-management of the maritime zones in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean “, concludes the comment of the KKE.
