Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is in Brussels for his first participation today at the European Union Summit, where the issues of Brexit, immigration and Turkey are expected to dominate talks in the shadow of developments in Syria.

According to government sources, the Greek prime minister will raise two key issues to his European counterparts: the consequences for the EU states that refrain from shouldering the part they have in dealing with immigration and the sanctions that should be imposed to Turkey for its violations in the Cyprus EEZ and the military operations in Syria.

In an interview with the French News Agency, the Prime Minister, after declaring the Turkish invasion of Syria unacceptable, pointed out that the move destabilized the country and stressed that Europe cannot be blackmailed by Turkey’s threats, but at the same time, it should be prepared for a new wave of migrants and refugees.
