Germany has rejected Greece’s request for arms embargo on Turkey amid the ongoing tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Speaking to German Press Agency (dpa) German Foreign Minister Heiko Mass said “I do not find the demand of an arms embargo against Turkey strategically correct. It is not easy to do this against a NATO partner.”
He added “We saw that NATO ally Turkey easily bought missiles from Russia because it could not buy from the US.”
Maas also said he hoped that Athens and Ankara will resolve their disputes through diplomatic channels.
