This week Greece stepped up diplomatic efforts to mobilize its European Union partners against Turkey, as Ankara continues its provocations in the Eastern Mediterranean near the Greek island of Kastellorizo. These diplomatic steps included a call for a halt on military exports to Turkey, a potential reevaluation of the EU’s customs union with Turkey, and an appeal for solidarity in line with the bloc’s mutual defense clause.

Yiannis Palaiologos, Kathimerini and SKAI TV’s EU correspondent in Brussels, joins us to analyze these latest moves by Athens and the mood among EU members when it comes to Turkey.
