  • [01] DM Meimarakis issues warning to Ankara

    National Defence Minister Evangelos Meimarakis, referring on Thursday to the air collision that occurred between a Greek and Turkish warplane over the Aegean on Tuesday, issued a severe warning to Ankara, stressing with emphasis that "we do not make aggressive moves, but to provocations the necessary reply will be given."

    The minister was speaking from Larissa, central Greece, where he visited the Tactical Airforce Headquarters.

    Meimarakis said that "Turkey must understand that the development of our relations depends on its conduct as well as on its European course, and for this reason, its full abidance is required, to the principles of good neighbourliness."

    The defence minister called on Ankara "to cease the violations of Greek air space and to change logic and approach to the matter."

    Meimarakis was accompanied on his visit to Larissa by Deputy National Defence Ministers Vassilis Michaloliakos and Yiannis Lambropoulos and Chief of the Armed Forces General Staff Admiral Panagiotis Hinofotis.
