Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan unleashed new threats against Greece, escalating his already highly acrimonious stance towards his NATO ‘ally’.
The Turkish president accused Greece of harbouring terrorists in a camp in Lavrio, a town in the southeastern part of Attica while claiming that weapons in western Thrace and islands mean nothing to Ankara.
“Terrorists are protected in almost every country in Europe, especially in the Greek camp in Lavrio,” said the Turkish president, noting that terrorists are a threat to the peace and security of Western countries, which protect terrorist groups. “We expect all countries, especially the neighbours, to take appropriate measures against terrorist organisations,” he added.
Continuing on Greece, he said that “we know very well the intentions of those who motivate it [Greece]”, while he said that “the weapons that are accumulating in western Thrace and the islands mean nothing to us. Our strength is far beyond them.” At the same time, he threatened that “support from America will not save you”.
