Foreign minister Dimitris Droutsas reiterated that Greece wants "clear-cut" positions with Turkey, but also stressed that Athens leaves nothing unanswered, in an interview appearing Monday in the Athens daily "Ta Nea".

"We are taking all the necessary measures, both diplomatic and operational, to respond to the provocations and to consolidate our sovereign rights," Droutsas said.

During a parliamentary discussion among political party leaders on foreign policy issues, Droutsas warned that those who are playing political games with the national issues are putting at risk Greece's vital interests and will find themselves face-to-face with the government.

"The strategic goals of Greek foreign policy are timeless," he said, adding that "everyone should be struggling for the same goals", while he also stressed that he does not doubt anyone's patriotism.
