Joe Biden: Turkey must stop provocations against Greece


US Democratic candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday called on President Donald Trump’s administration to pressure Turkey to end its provocations against Greece and urged Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to reverse his decision to convert Hagia Sophia in mosque. “The Trump administration must pressure Turkey to refrain from any further provocative action in the region against Greece including threats of force in order to create space for diplomacy to succeed,” Biden said in a statement.

“I also call on Turkish President Erdogan to reverse his recent decision to convert Hagia Sophia into a mosque and restore this treasure to its former status as a museum, ensuring equal access for all, including Orthodox worshipers. Biden also said he supports NATO’s efforts to defuse tensions between Greece and Turkey and that the agreements to establish a military deconfliction mechanism and resume diplomatic negotiations is going in the right direction.
