Bahçeli accuses Greece, allies of violating Turkish airspace during INIOCHOS 2021 exercises


Devlet Bahçeli, leader of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) that is in a ruling coalition with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP), once again spoke about supposed conspiracies against Turkey by Greece.

The INIOCHOS 2021 exercises, the largest air exercise in Europe and the wider Mediterranean region, includes the participation of Greece, France, the U.S., France, Israel, Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Cyprus and Spain.

Austria, Egypt, Jordan, Romania and Slovenia also sent military observers.

In the context of Turkey's illegal claims over Greek sovereign rights, Bahçeli claimed that Greece was "violating Turkish airspace" with these exercises and spoke of a conspiracy organised by Athens with other countries against Turkey.

The INIOCHOS exercise is carried out on an annual basis at the Air Tactics Center (KEAT) and the Andravida Air Base in northwestern Peloponnese.
