Tsipras, who was hosting EU (European Union) Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, said Greece could play a central role in elevating the role of the 28-member bloc for peace and security.

"We are proving that by being decisive and also calm in dealing with dangerous provocations in the Aegean by Turkey towards our sovereign rights," Tsipras said.
