Greece ‘deliberately’ eroding Lausanne Peace Treaty: Turkish president
Not possible for Türkiye to accept it, incompatible with principle of good neighborly relations, says Erdogan
In a video message on the 99th anniversary of Lausanne Peace Treaty, President Erdogan said: "The terms and conditions of Lausanne Peace Treaty, particularly rights of Turkish minority, have recently been deliberately eroded by Greece."
"It is not possible for our country to accept this situation, which is incompatible with the principle of good neighborly relations and loyalty to the treaty,” he added.
Türkiye solidifies its active position in regional and global issues as it takes firm step towards 2023, the 100th anniversary of Lausanne Peace Treaty and foundation of the Republic of Türkiye, he added.
The treaty was signed on July 24, 1923 after the Turkish victory in the War of Independence.
