“These are crucial moments for this land. Turkish aggression is escalating dangerously, challenging both Greece and Europe.

As Greeks, we must rise to the occasion with sobriety, confidence and determination.

No blackmail under the pretext of Turkey’s unacceptable claims should go unanswered.

Greece can and must prevent it”. /ibna
