Turkish FM Cavusoglu Attacks U.S. Amb. Tsunis

ANKARA – The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mevlut Cavusoglu, launched a new fierce attack on Greece on Tuesday, October 11, this time targeting the Greek-American U.S. Ambassador to Greece, George Tsunis.

“The U.S. ambassador in Athens should know that what he is doing does not benefit the U.S. or Greece. The U.S. must return to balance,” in its policy, said Cavusoglu in an interview with the TVNET television network. He added the challenge that “whoever threatens Turkey will find out that the ‘one night we will come suddenly’ is true.”

And Cavusoglu continued by repeating Ankara’s baseless complaints, among them: “Greece is violating the Lausanne and Paris treaties that were signed for peace. The reason for the [the islands’] demilitarization was this. For peace to continue they must be demilitarized. Therefore [Greece] wants conflict, not peace. And this must be answered by us.”

He then referred to the Muslim minority of Thrace, repeating that “in Thrace there is persecution, oppression, there is no religious freedom,” before tacking on more of the usual complaints.

Cavusoglu continued his derogatory language, saying, “we are telling Greece that if you say ‘behind me stand the USA and the EU,’ then we will say ‘good morning’ (he said it in Greek – ‘καλημερα’) to wake you from your sleep. All this is of no use to you.”

Turkey’s top diplomat concluded with even less diplomatic language: “You tried to take the Turkish lands, we threw you into the sea and you still haven’t digested it. Greece violates our airspace, and then we respond multiple times.”
