Greek PM to CNN, "We have every right to protect our sovereign borders"
The Duran Quick Take: Episode 493.
The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' interview with CNN on Friday.
The Greek Prime Minister told CNN that "right now, let's be honest, the [EU-Turkey] agreement is dead, and it's dead because Turkey has decided to completely violate the agreement because of what happened in Syria."
Mitsotakis said that their was "a conscious attempt by Turkey to use migrants and refugees as geopolitical pawns to promote its own interests," pointing out that people crossing into Greece via Turkey are not mainly from Syria but have been living in Turkey for a long period of time, assisted by Turkish authorities.
Mitsotakis said that Turkey has "systematically assisted, both at land and at sea, people in their effort to cross into Greece. Europe is not going to be blackmailed over this problem by Turkey."
