Turkey destabilizes other countries through mercenaries – Greek Foreign Ministry

Greek Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexandros Papaioannou on Sunday accused Turkey of destabilizing other countries by keeping its forces and mercenaries in their territory.

"Turkey is trying to distort reality and create a smokescreen in order to hide its own constant violations of international law,” he said in a statement.

“As is well known, Turkey has issued a threat of war against Greece if Greece exercises its lawful rights (casus belli); it violates national sovereignty and contests Greece’s sovereign rights; it illegally occupies territories of other states and destabilizes other countries by maintaining troops and mercenaries in their territory.

“At a time when it has one of the largest landing forces facing the Greek islands, Turkey is shamelessly asking Greece, a country which is fully committed to the observance of international legality, to renounce its fundamental right of self-defense,” reads the statement.
