Turkey’s NATO victory ‘terrible diplomatic defeat’: Greece’s Tsipras

The deal between Turkey, Sweden and Finland at the NATO summit in Madrid is “a diplomatic waterloo for the Greek positions,” main opposition Syriza leader and former-Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in an interview with Open TV on Thursday night.

He accused the conservative New Democracy government of placing the bar too low, while he accused them of being satisfied that the issue of the sovereignty of the Greek islands was not raised at the summit by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

The former prime minister said: “We should not only be concerned about the sale of F-16s to Turkey but also about the confirmation of the West’s overall support to Turkey.”
