Athens denounces Turkish minister Celik's statements about Agathonissi

Greece's foreign ministry, in an announcement on Wednesday, strongly condemned and denounced statements made by Turkish European Affairs Minister Omer Celik regarding the status of the Greek island of Agathonissi in the Aegean.

"We categorically condemn the continuing revisionary policy of Turkey, which is making provocative statements questioning internationally recognised borders as these have been historically formed and established under international law in the last century," the announcement said.
Greece denounced Turkey's continued revisionary and dangerous behaviour to the international community and the member-states of the United Nations, the announcement added.
"It creates a painfully bad impression that this time the questioning of international law comes from the lips of the minister responsible for Turkey's accession to the European Union," the annoucement added.
