KYRIAKOS MITSOTAKIS

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed his disappointment with Germany after Greece was not invited to participate in Sunday’s German-hosted summit on Sunday (19 January) on the Libyan crisis.

The Greek Prime Minister warned that unless the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Turkey and Libya on maritime zones is not revoked, Greece will block any peace proposal and veto relevant decisions in the EU Council and the Council of Foreign Affairs.

It should be noted that before heading to Germany to participate in the summit, Libyan General Khalifa Haftar, leader of the Tobruk-based Libyan National Army, made a stopover in Greece where he met with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias.

“We had a long conversation with General Haftar on all matters: The situation in Libya, the conference in Berlin and the next day in Libya and the wider area. We want a ceasefire, removal of mercenaries and cancellation of illegal memoranda,” Dendias said.
