WASHINGTON – With Turkey pushing its deal with Libya dividing the seas between them, a visiting Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis told an audience in the Greek-American enclave of Tarpon Springs, Florida he’s planning to bring more countries into an alliance against the provocations.

Ahead of his scheduled Jan. 7 meeting in Washington with President Donald Trump, as tensions are flaring over the American drone hit that took out Iran’s top General, Mitsotakis further condemned Turkey’s violations in the Eastern Mediterranean and Aegean and Libya deal.

“Already, America, Europe, Russia and all the Mediterranean states – from France, Cyprus and Greece, to Israel and Egypt – have condemned Turkish behavior in Libya,” the Greek prime minister said, referring to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s decision to send troops to the North African country to back the government in Tripoli, reported Kathimerini.

“And they are all reacting to (Turkey’s) unilateral actions on maritime zones,” Mitsotakis added in reference to the the deal with Libya which saw Turkey claims waters off major Greek islands, including Rhodes, and plans to drill for oil and gas off Crete, where the US has a Naval base.

“An alliance of peace and security is being raised against the threat of instability,” said Mitsotakis although Trump says he’s close to Erdogan and has been reluctant to get tough with him at the same time the US has renewed a military cooperation with Greece and wants to expand its presence in the country.

Mitsotakis also hailed the passing of the Eastern Mediterranean Security and Energy Partnership Act, so far a political deal seeking investors to build a line to bring energy to the European Union in an agreement with Cyprus and Israel, who also have spoken out against Turkey.

Mitsotakis said he’s building the heat in the hope that “Turkey will start to feel its international isolation,” although Erdogan has shown utter contempt for what the world thinks, with Turkey already drilling for energy in Cypriot waters.

The Greek Prime Minister was speaking at an event organized by the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) for the Jan. 6 Epiphany holiday, where he also held separate talks with Congressman Gus Bilirakis, his father and former representative Michael Bilirakis, Tarpon Springs Mayor Chris Alahouzos, AHEPA Supreme President George Horiatis, Treasurer Savvas Tsivikos and the event chairman Steven Sakoulas, the paper said.

“Hellenism needs to stand united,” Mitsotakis said in a speech at the AHEPA dinner, adding that his New Democracy’s success in getting rival parties to support a partial vote for the Diaspora ensures they would not feel like “second-class citizens” of Greece although most still can’t vote.

  1. How Hillarious .. Mistotakis want U.S to shield Greece with U.S bases.. which were supposed to have been removed by the other Traitor Tsipras !

    MIstotalkois wants a Fascist degenerate military who invaded, bombed and slaughtered 600,000 Iraqi based on a another lie.. created fanatical Terrorist rebels like ISIS AND AL Queda to take over the countries of the Middle East then build an embassy, large enough to support battalions of U.S troops to oppress the people of Iraq and add more bases. and now from those bases in broad Daylight .. demonstrates it is merely and organized crime family , no different than those of Al Capone and Bugsy Segal , to publically assassinate the leaders of a foreign country meeting with government of Iraq ..which is the installed government of the U.S!

    The execution of Iranian and Iraq citizens .is nothing less than The ST. Valentines day massacre of 12 opposing members to the Al Capone crime family because they were cutting in on AL Capone Donald Ttrump and Bugsy Segal .Nentanyahue, by hit men dressed in Police State Uniforms!

    His own Installed Iraqi government ..has ordered all U.S troops and bases out of Iraq for their interantional declaration of war without the permission of the people of America and now threatons the lives of the people of Iraq!

    This is who Mistotakis would like to add more bases to the ones he has already continued to support, and comply with only meeting with countries and there dignitaries or leaders who are acceptable clients of the U.S ..like Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt , and now make there enemies like Russia , China, Iran , Iraq, Syria ,Venezuela, Cuba .. etc etc .. targets of Assassination ..which countries like Israel and Saudi Arabia could execute , like they did in Iraq .. frame Iran by sending their death squards like the did on 9/11 and on the U.S embassy in Iraq!

    The world has seen this act.. by the U.S government to stage a red flag attack to start a war! The Gulf of Tonkin lie to start bombing North Vietmam ..fully described in the Pentagon Papers.. the lie of nuclear weapons in Iraq..all lies .. the lies that the leader of libya was killing civilians when he was killing the Scum of the earth terrorist payed for by Hillary Clinton, Edrogan , and the Royal family of Saudi Arabia!
