Turkish Coast Guard Vessel Enters Greek Territorial Waters, Harasses Patrol Boat

ATHENS – A captain of a Turkish Coast Guard vessel carried out dangerous maneuvers within Greek territorial waters around a Greek patrol boat near Leros island, the Shipping & Island Policy Ministry said on Wednesday.

The incident occurred on Monday (July 25) off Farmakonissi, NE of Leros in the East Aegean, when the Turkish boat harassed a patrol boat of the Greek Port Authority & Coast Guard that is assigned to Leros.

According to a Shipping Ministry statement, the Greek vessel was on orders to identify a target in the greater sea region, as a Turkish vessel had entered Greek territorial waters and did not respond to VHF contact attempts.

There were no injuries or damage to either patrol boat, the ministry said, and released a video of the incident on the Greek coast guard site www.hcg.gr.


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis addressing the new Cabinet at a meeting held in the Maximos Mansion on Saturday, said that he chose this first meeting after the elections to coincide with the government reshuffle "in order to send an overall message of dynamic restart because June 9 was a landmark in our up to date course but also a new start for the next three years of our term" .
