An extremely dangerous move has taken place today as Turkey escalates tensions between Ankara and Athens on the Aegean Sea.

According to state agency broadcaster Anadolu, Ankara has ordered a frigate, two missiles and a command group from their Navy and told them to be ready and waiting at all times.

The command is said to have been given due to the tension prevailing in the Aegean, with  Ankara insisting they are making this move “because of Greece’s effort to increase tension in the Aegean.”

This comes just as Turkish President Erdogan has been quoted as saying ,”Our neighbours in Greece are finished, they have gone bankrupt. Nevertheless, (the international agencies) have upgraded them. These people (the Greeks) sank, collapsed, are you able to save them by upgrading them? Look at their roads and streets and see how bad they are now, “Erdogan said in a speech.
