The door of Maximus Mansion crossed on Tuesday morning the Ambassador of Turkey Kerim Uras, to deliver to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras a letter former Prime Minister of Turkey Ahmet Davutoglu.

Davutoglu’s letter was given to all European leaders, with the Greek premier being among the first to received it, a fact that was commented in the private meeting by the Turkish Ambassador, stating that Greece was one of the few countries which unequivocally condemned from the first moment the failed coup attempt and supported the democratically elected government of Turkey.

According to information of IBNA, in his letter the former Prime Minister gives a detailed account on the latest developments in Turkey after the failed coup of July 15, cites evidence of the action of the terrorist organization of Gulen “FETO”, seeking the support of European leaders in these efforts.

Implicitly but plainly, Ahmet Davutoglu suggests in his letter that Turkey’s European perspective remains as an objective.

The initiative of Ahmet Davutoglu demonstrates his support to Recep Tayyip Erdogan, acting as Turkey’s European “link”, as he is widely appreciated in the West.
