Greek Defense Minister: Turkish Threat is Real

“Turkish threat is not theoretical, it is real” said Greek Defense Minister Panos Beglitis during a visit to Cyprus. “We see it on the Aegean Sea, We see it in Cyprus through the occupational presence of the Turkish army, a result of the invasion in 1974.”
