New threats from Erdoğan to Greece: “Do not equip the islands – I speak seriously, I am not joking” (VIDEO)

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan

Today, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan sent a threatening message to Greece again from Smyrna (Σμύρνα, Turkish: İzmir), where he observed the “EFES 2022” military exercise.

“Once again, we call on Greece to stop equipping the islands that are under civilian status and to act in accordance with international agreements. I’m not kidding, I’m serious. “This nation is determined, if it says anything, it will follow it,” he said.

In fact, he pulls the strings further, emphasising that Greece since its foundation is based on the backs of other countries and is involved in the calculations of others.

In his delirium, the Turkish president threatened Greece, saying that Turkey would use its power to implement the conditions “that Greece is violating” and called on Athens “not to repeat the mistakes it made a century ago.”

Erdoğan’s position on Greece in detail:

“We hope that none of our real allies will question our country’s legitimate security concerns.

“It is our right to expect our allies and friends to understand and respect our legitimate concerns in this matter.

“Some Greek politicians try to stay on the agenda with rhetoric far from reality. There are countless examples before us that such issues are sensitive and can have disastrous consequences.

“Once again, we call on Greece to stop equipping the islands that are under civilian status and to act in accordance with international agreements.

“I’m not kidding, I’m serious.

“This nation is determined, if they say something, they will follow it.

“Mr. Mitsotakis probably makes tourist landings on the islands. It can not go anywhere like that.

“We warn Greece, as a century ago, to stay away from dreams and actions that will lead to remorse and to restoration.

“Turkey will not relinquish its rights in the Aegean and will not hesitate to use the forces recognised by international agreements.

“As an ally that pays the highest price in every respect within NATO, we calmly welcome the challenges of Greece, which has not even responded to our calls for a military delegation meeting in the last two years.

“However, we see that our patience is misunderstood by our interlocutor. Turkey does not violate anyone’s rights and laws.

“In fact, this country has always made similar moves based on someone else since the day it was founded.

“We warn Greece again to stay away from dreams that will make it regret. Behave properly.

“Turkey will not hesitate to use the powers conferred on it by international law on arming the islands when needed.”

At the same time, the Turkish president announced drilling in the Mediterranean: “We will continue our drilling in the Eastern Mediterranean in accordance with UN practices.”

Erdoğan, who is threatening to launch a new offensive in northern Syria, said today that he “hopes” that he will be supported by Ankara’s allies.

“We will certainly fill in the gaps in our security zone,” he warned about the Turkish border with Syria. “We hope that none of our true allies will oppose our legitimate concerns.

Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar for his part also sent messages against Greece in his speech during the exercise.

“The goals that have been set today have been achieved. We congratulate our friends and allies who contributed significantly to the success of the exercise.

“Once again, we saw in the field the results of the weapons and ammunition produced by our domestic and national defense industry. Greece continues its aggressive policy.

“Greece persistently continues its irrational claims without learning from history. Greece shamelessly accuses Turkey of expansionism.

“Arms and alliance efforts are futile.”

The Turkish Foreign Ministry released videos of helicopters and live ammunition from corvettes destroyed by artillery fire from Turkish ADA class corvettes.
