Ankara’s inflammatory rhetoric and behavior only reinforce Greece’s argument about Turkey’s aggressive stance, said FM Nikos Dendias, Kathimerini reported.
“Turkey’s behavior absolutely substantiates the Greek arguments, that we are threatened, that the casus belli against Greece is not empty of content, and that Greece is facing a threat from Turkey,” Dendias said in an interview on Skai Radio.
“We have our own position. We won’t be drawn into escalation,” Dendias said, adding that “if we do, it will be because the Greek government has decided to do so.”
“Dialogue with a regime of insults, has a difficulty, to put it elegantly,” he said, noting that Greece has stated that it wants to have communication.
