Erdogan learns …Greek and escalates his threats to Greece on Twitter

In a surprise move, Turkish President Recept Tayyip Erdogan tweeted in Greek to escalate the tension and directly threatened his neighbor country and NATO ally Greece for one more time on Thursday evening. Addressing also an international audience he posted the same tweets also in English.

In his Greek and English tweets, Erdogan called on Greece “to be prudent so as not to regret it” he wrote and  talked about rights in the Aegean Sea, warning that he will use them citing international agreements.

Among others, he reiterated his claim that if an island is close to Turkey also belongs to …Turkey

“The importance of claiming maritime jurisdiction of 40,000km2 for Megisti [island], located in the Eastern Mediterranean and less than 2km from the mainland of our country while from mainland Greece over 600km, we leave it the discretion of the international community.”

It is recalled that earlier today, Erdogan launched direct threats against Greece saying characteristically “I’m not joking, I’m serious,” when it comes to demilitarization of the Greek islands.

He called to Greece to “comply with international law!” “Greece should” avoid dreams, actions and statements that will result in regret.”

He claimed further that “despite the fact that Greece is an EU member, it continues to supress the Turkish minority in Thrace, Rhodes and Kos, ignoring the values of the Union, the human rights internationally and the international agreements.

He  did not hesitate to make an indirect reference to the Asia Minor Disaster of 1922, calling on Greece to come to its senses (!) And “stay away from actions that will make her regret and be disappointed as it did a century ago.”

“Turkey will not relinquish its rights in the Aegean and will not back down from exercising its rights established by international treaties on island equipment,” he added.

In an unthinkable crescendo of threats, Erdogan launched a new personal attack on Kyriakos Mitsotakis, saying that “the Greek Prime Minister is probably doing tourism in the islands and that this can not continue!”
