Erdogan, opposition CHP hand-in-hand to challenge Greek islands

“If you have the heart for it, take the step on the occupied and armed islands. We will support you,” leader of Turkey’s main opposition party CHP, Kemal Kilicdaroglu said in support of Erdogan’s aggressive policy towards Greece.

Speaking at the Grand National Assembly on Wednesday, the chief of  [Modern Turkey founder] Ataturk’s party Republican People’s Party (CHP) expressed his agreement with the recent government escalation against the neighboring country.

Kilicdaroglu clearly indicated that it would support President Recep Tayyip Erdogan if he decided to go through with a threat to challenge the sovereignty of Greek islands in the eastern Aegean.

“Are you with Turkey in its efforts to create permanent economic zones at the border line in the Mediterranean and the Aegean,” Erdogan reportedly asked Kilicdaroglu.

And he responded “our position is clear. It is imperative that we increase the pressure in the Mediterranean and the Aegean.”

“These things aren’t handled by sending out a ship, then pulling back and saying: ‘I wish Biden would call me’,” he added, in reference to US President Joe Biden.

PS As Turkey’s foreign police is a state police and not a party one, even if Erdogan goes the provocations against Greece will continue as it happened after the mid-1990, long before Erdogan came in power.

  1. So long as Turkeys insist on violating international law, they will meet their long overdue fate. This is 2022. There is no circumventing justice externally.

    Their nationalistic spirit to mislead and thieve will falter. Without mass cooperation and civility, the international community will increasingly isolate them.

    They should move away from their domestic media painting the west as this opportunistic Muslim nation’s adversary.

    The sooner these defiant pirates learn, the better off they will be in every sense. In the meantime their economy is in shambles and their reputation a laughing stock.

  2. Turkey’s inflation for the month of May rose by an eye-watering 73.5% year on year, its highest in 23 years, as the country grapples with soaring food and energy costs and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s long-running unorthodox strategy on monetary policy (sourrce CNBC)

    And as always Erdogan start pcking fights with neighbours to distract from his own domestic policy failure
