Opposition to Turkish President

Greek authorities retaliated against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan after he threatened to launch missiles against Athens last weekend.

Things cannot be accepted

Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, arriving in Brussels for a meeting on EU foreign policy, said it is unacceptable and universally condemned for an allied country to threaten a missile attack against Greece.

Discussion in the meeting

As a result, the North Atlantic Alliance cannot accept North Korean attitudes. At a town hall meeting with youths in Samsun on Saturday, Erdogan said the Turkish government was frightened by the Greeks because of the Tayfun short-range ballistic missiles it was making.

The war claims

In the past half-century, neighbors and NATO allies have conflicted with several issues, including territorial claims in the Aegean Sea and rights to energy exploration. Three times in the past half-century, they have come close to war.

Athens's violation

Turkish government officials claim that some Greek islands are in dispute because Athens violated international treaties.

The Turkish troop on mission

It is highly unusual to hear a threat of a missile strike from Erdogan. However, Erdogan also threatened to land Turkish troops 'suddenly one night' in Greece.

Giannis's statement

During a media briefing in Athens, Greek government spokesman Giannis Oikonomou said that Erdogan must know that his country cannot be terrorized or intimidated.
