Erdogan Blames Greece for Provocations, Troubles with Turkey

ATHENS – While it’s been Turkey that’s threatening Greece with war and sending fighter jets into Greek airspace, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is blaming Greece for provocations he said won’t achieve anything.

“Greece needs to come to its senses. They must learn that provocation and instigation will not get them anywhere,” Erdoğan said during a joint live broadcast on the ATV and a Haber channels.

“It is not possible to explain or accept the stance Greece adopted lately toward Turkey. Of course, we cannot stay silent and unresponsive in the face of this hostile and aggressive stance,” he added.

He said his response is being shown with building more armaments after he cautioned Greece that Turkish forces might “come suddenly one night,” in a warning of his thoughts or intentions.

Erdoğan said that the domestic, short-range ballistic missile Tayfun was likely worrying Greece and that its distance would be increased to hit Greek targets if a conflict does break out.

“The range of 561 kilometers (348.56 miles) is to be extended further… Of course, these 561 kilometers started to frighten the Greeks because Athens is completely within its range, they gave a red alert.”

ATHENS - "The absolute priority of the government is the continuous increase in citizens' income with permanent measures, something that becomes even more necessary due to the persistent, imported price spike," government spokesperson, Pavlos Marinakis, said on Thursday during a press briefing held in Thessaloniki.
