Ioannis Mazis: "If Erdoğan attempts to attack Greece, it will mark his downfall"

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will pay dearly for any attack on Greece, according to geopolitics professor Ioannis Mazis, who believes that some are pushing Turkey's president into failure to lose power.

Professor Ioannis Mazis spoke about the escalation of tension by Turkey, warning Erdoğan that "he will pay dearly and it will mean his downfall" if he dares any attack against Greece.

"There is rightly concern, but it is covered by the extreme readiness of the Greek forces," said the emeritus professor of Economic Geography and Geopolitical Theory at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Ioannis Mazis, about the tension with Turkey.

He added, however, speaking to the Cypriot television station Sigma: "I feel sorry for Erdoğan if he decides to do what he is told. He will pay dearly for it and it will mean his downfall and he will have many dangers."

The professor added that the lifting of the arms embargo in Cyprus is not only about the equipment, but is a resounding message to Turkey that the US has understood who is the wrongdoer and who is a danger to NATO.

"Erdoğan got the message. The statements of the USA that have to do with the Aegean are in the same direction. Some are pushing Erdoğan to find himself in failure in order to lose power," noted the professor.

In the event of a hot episode, as he explained, the intervention of the US will be provoked so that the situation can return to a peaceful situation.
