Erdoğan also reminded that they have repeatedly stated that they want to solve the Eastern Mediterranean and Aegean problems within the framework of international law.

Erdoğan also added: “I expect the European Union to invite our interlocutors to dialogue on a bilateral basis, instead of supporting unjust and unlawful initiatives under the name of ‘unity solidarity.
