Turkey and Greece Step Back from the Brink | Greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis | GZERO World

"I want to make it very clear: it was not Greece that engaged in any escalation or provocation." Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis defends his country's handling of an increasingly tense diplomatic standoff with neighboring Turkey over maritime disputes in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The exchange is part of a wide-ranging interview show host Ian Bremmer for GZERO World that covered Greece's remarkably successful COVID response, its "improved brand" on the European stage and recent Turkey tensions. The episode begins airing nationally in the US on public television this Friday, October 2. Check local listings.
