Greek armed forces will not participate in any possible military operation in Syria, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told French President Emanuel Macron during a telephone call on Thursday, while he also condemned the use of chemical weapons.
The two leaders discussed recent developments in Syria. Tsipras pointed out the necessity for decisive initiatives by the EU and the search for a peaceful solution on the basis of Sweden’s proposal, government sources said.
The two men focused on Turkey’s role and actions in the greater region and discussed the strengthening of Greek-French defence cooperation.
They also discussed the Cyprus issue and Greek-Cypriot collaboration on energy, the FYROM name issue and EU-Turkish relations.
