“Days of Ottoman Empire are over,” Greek FM tells Turkey

“The days of the Ottoman Empire are over,” Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias said on Thursday and urged Turkey to comply with the international law.

“Turkey must finally understand that it can no longer behave as if we are in the 18th or 19th century,” Dendias said after a briefing of opposition party representatives on Cyprus developments, including a plan by Turkish and Turkish Cypriot leaders to partially reopen the abandoned resort of Varosha.

“The days of the Ottoman Empire are over… Respect for international law and the law of the sea are the governing principles of relations between states,” Dendias said adding that “realizing this would be in the interest of Turkish society, a large part of which I believe already shares these views

Despite the political differences, Dendias did not hesitate to call his Turkish counterpart Nevlut Cavusoglu on Thursday and offer Greece’s assistance in the forest fires in South Turkey.

  1. Turks accuse others of what they do. They sow seeds of contempt, like bombing their own mosques to blame Greeks, like they blame their wildfires now.

    Their operand was untrustworthy even before this uneducated and epileptic dictator Erdogan now controlling the media to mislead a nationalistic public., let alone now after jailing so journalists and judges.

    Also, coups do not usually fail in Turkey either, in the event the west was also lied to, to consolidate power, given this Islamic friend of Jihadist’s, Hamas, the Muslim brotherhood, etc., and his respect for international law or the west.
