ATHENS – The Greek foreign ministry issued a stern reply to accusations made by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and said the Turkish government was spreading fake news, in tweets late on Monday.

It also accused Turkey of using people as a “battering ram” and stressed that it was in no position to lecture anyone on international law and human rights.

“When a country uses people as a battering ram, fabricates fake news to mislead them, and systematically violates the sovereignty and sovereign rights of neighboring countries, it is in no position to point fingers at anyone.

And of course it is in no position to lecture anyone on International Law and human rights. After all, #Turkey has been failing these particular courses for years,” the tweets, posted on the ministry’s official account, said.
