Greek Embassy Ordered to Deliver Demarche to Turkish FM Over Incident With Greek Gov’t Aircraft

October 15, 2020

ATHENS — The Greek Embassy in Ankara has been ordered to present a demarche to the Turkish foreign ministry regarding Wednesday's incident involving the government aircraft carrying Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias from Baghdad to Athens, diplomatic sources said on Thursday.

Earlier, a malfunction in the Greek government aircraft did not allow Dendias visit to Iraqi Kurdistan and Erbil, as originally planned.

According to diplomatic sources, the Turkish side took the initiative and provided explanations to the Greek Embassy in Ankara before the demarche was presented, attributing the incident to technical error by the responsible Turkish agency.

The Greek Embassy in Ankara will raise the issue again, in order to ensure that such an incident is not repeated.


ATHENS – The New Democracy government said its major rival SYRIZA, which has a hard-core nucleus of anarchist and terrorist sympathizers, should take a stand over violent demonstrations trying to block construction of a new Metro subway station in the central neighborhood of Exarchia.
