Eye on Turkey, Greece Revising National Security Policy, Red Lines

ATHENS – Backing diplomacy but staying on guard against renewed Turkish provocations, Greece's ruling New Democracy government is reassembling its national security policy to bolster a bulwark against potential threats.

Those will include revising so-called Red Lines over which another country allegedly can't step but happens occasionally, with Greece using as a model the United States' foreign policy guidelines, said Kathimerini.

It will be put together by Thanos. Dokos, National Security Adviser to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, after a decision by the Council for Foreign Affairs and Defense (KYSEA,) the paper said.

He will try to coordinate policy and centralize decision-making between a host of agencies involved in national security, including the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Defense, the Digital Governance Ministry and the Ministry of Citizens Protection, the new scheme expected to come by year's end.

The focus is Turkey, which is planning to authorize a hunt for energy in and around Greek waters and islands during a summer caesura in provocations so that both countries won't have tourism affected.

The two countries have sometimes come close to a conflict over Turkey's belligerence and violating Greek airspace and waters with fighter jets and warships and the dispute over the seas and territory.


ATHENS - The matter of an alleged plan to draw up an agreement between Turkey and Libya on the exploitation of Libyan energy sources by Turkey is being closely followed, Greek diplomatic sources said on Monday.
