In his statements during his visit at the base of maintenance of the Turkish Air Force, the Turkish Defense Minister referred to various issues, as well as developments in the Aegean and Cyprus.
“We are continuing our presence in the Blue Country where the rights and interests of our country are. When we do this, in all honesty, we try to have good neighborly relations with all our neighbors and especially with Greece. However, due to some political factors and incorrect calculations, events are distorted. Certain provocations take place. Everyone needs to know that they have no effect. The Republic of Turkey will not allow any fait accompli. In matters of economic, military and security, in the Aegean, in the eastern Mediterranean and in Cyprus, we can’t approve of any issue that does not include Turkey. We are absolutely determined. On the other hand, we respect international law and bilateral agreements. Everyone should know that we are not relinquishing our rights”./IBNA
