Greece supports Cyprus in seeking sanctions against Turkey, says Foreign Ministry spokesperson

Greece supports Cyprus in seeking targetted sanctions against Turkey, Greek Foreign Ministry's Spokesperson Alexandros Gennimatas said on Friday.

Gennimatas was replying to a question to do with the possibility of the EU imposing sanctions against Ankara due to the tensions with Greece and Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean.

«Greece firmly supports Cyprus’ position to impose targetted sanctions on people and entities involved in Turkey’s ongoing gas-exploration activities inside the island country’s exclusive economic zone," the Foreign Ministry's Spokesperson said.
