Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said Athens is open to dialogue with Ankara.

"Greece never provokes, it always responds confidently when provoked," Mitsotakis said, Kathimerini reported.

"It makes no sense to accuse Greece of inflaming tensions in the Aegean Sea when Turkey raises questions about the sovereignty of the islands," he said. According to him, "Greece does not close the door to dialogue," "we are confident that international law is on our side."

The day before, Turkish leader Recep Erdogan said Turkey "has nothing to discuss" with Greece. He said Athens "understood" Ankara's message that "we might suddenly arrive one night."  "Let not only Greece hear this. 'We may come suddenly one night,' no matter which country attacks us. They should know about it," Erdogan said.

The Greek leader also referred to the controversial comments Erdogan made during a dinner meeting in Prague Thursday night. "It was a first-class opportunity for my colleagues, who do not know enough about the subject, to understand who is provoking and which country is confidently defending its rights," Mitsotakis said.
