Greek Communists express deep reservations over Greek-Turkish diplomacy
Amidst a whirlwind of international diplomacy centered around Greece-Turkey relations, the Communist Party of Greece's newspaper Rizospastis has conveyed profound apprehensions about the unfolding scenarios.
According to the newspaper, in Nicosia, while leaders from Greece, Cyprus, and Israel underscored the upcoming months as pivotal for resolving Greek-Turkish issues and energy diversification, a distinct concern emanated regarding Israel's budding cooperation with Turkey.
In Ankara, the unveiled road map for Greek-Turkish relations and the emphasis on a "dialogue without preconditions" has raised eyebrows, particularly regarding potential implications for regional stability and NATO unity.
But the NATO Summit in Vilnius brought forth the most palpable trepidations. The Greek Prime Minister's reference to the "reduction of sovereignty" as a "relative concept" and NATO's altered stances towards geopolitical landmarks like the Bosphorus Straits have fueled concerns about preserving national interests and the direction of regional alignments.
An overarching narrative becomes evident in analyzing these events sequentially: a grand geopolitical compromise in the making, driven by Euro-Atlantic interests, with energy considerations playing a pivotal role. Yet, for the Communist Party, the core issue-question remains: At what cost to the true interests of the Greek and Turkish populace?
