Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Ioannis Lagos
 Subject: Escalation of provocative actions by Turkey in Evros

Taking advantage of the compliance and acquiescence of both the Greek government and the European Union, Turkey is behaving in an increasingly provocative fashion. Recently, unknown persons placed the Turkish flag on the Greek islet of Lulu, which is located in the river Evros in the vicinity of ​​the village of Pragi Didymoteicho. This is an unacceptable move which highlights the provocative stance adopted by Turkey in the the Eastern Mediterranean more generally. It is noteworthy that the Turkish flag was spotted by a local resident who informed the authorities in an area which is supposed to be strictly guarded by the army and police.

In this context, will the Commission say:

What steps will it take to ensure that Turkey suffers the consequences of its actions?

Which other state is permitted to behave in such a way without incurring sanctions? What else does Turkey have to do in order to suffer consequences?

When will funding for Turkey be completely removed from the European Union's budget and when will this criminal state cease to be considered an EU accession state?
