Omer Celik launched a direct attack on Kyriakos Mitsotakis, on the occasion of yesterday’s interview of the Greek Prime Minister on CNN and what he said about Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The press representative of the Turkish ruling party, AKP, commented that Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ statement that “Turkey is reviving neo-Ottoman fantasies” is “a phrase he uses to cover up his own illegal policies” and continued with provocative rhetoric about Kastellorizo.
“Mitsotakis follows an expansive and aggressive policy. It threatens the peace and stability of the region with its maximalist policy on the Eastern Mediterranean.
He defends the position that an island (i.e. Kastellorizo) with an area of 10 square kilometers, 2 kilometers from Anatolia and 580 kilometers from mainland Greece, has a continental shelf of 40 thousand square kilometers. This is an aggressive and expansionist policy and his claims are contrary to international law.”
And he continued: “It is tragic that the Greek prime minister targets our president with the claim of “expansionist”. The fact that the Mitsotakis government, which was struggling to pay a few billion euros of the Greek debt, increased the country’s armaments budget by five times, shows to the whole world that Greece does not have a peaceful disposition and is pursuing an aggressive policy in the Eastern Mediterranean,” he said. Celik, adding, in fact, that “the Greek opposition draws attention to the fact that the country has turned into a military base for foreign countries”.
