Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan has re­vis­ited the Lau­sanne Treaty of 1923, which set the mod­ern borders be­tween Greece and Turkey, say­ing that it is not some­thing that can’t be dis­cussed. “In no way is it a sa­cred text, and of course we will dis­cuss it,” he said, ac­cord­ing to Turk­ish news site A Haber. Er­do­gan’s re­cent re­peated ref­er­ences to the Lau­sanne Treaty have raised eye­brows in Athens. Last month he be­moaned the treaty as “un­fair” on Turkey which, he said, lost is­lands that “used to be ours.”
