Greece calls on Europe to draft a specific list of sanctions against Turkish regime

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has called on Europe to draft a specific list of actions, and sanctions against the Turkish regime which seeks to be a regional troublemaker, and which is evolving into a threat to the stability of the whole south-east Mediterranean region.
 
He described Turkey's decision to convert the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul to a mosque as "unnecessary and petty" and called for tougher European Union action over Ankara's gas exploration activities in the Mediterranean.
 
"With this backward action, Turkey is opting to sever links with the western world and its values," the prime minister said, according to reuters.
