Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Thursday called on European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to have full information on the contacts of the European Commission with Turkey.

The two officials also had a meeting with European Parliament head Martin Schulz on the sidelines of the informal EU summit on the refugee issue in Valletta. During the meeting, scenarios over joint Greek-Turkish patrols in the Aegean were closed.

According to sources, Juncker told Tsipras that the expression “joint patrols” is “unfortunate” and will be replaced by the expression “coordinated efforts” making clear that each country will operate in the region where it has sovereign rights.
