Turkey lashes out at Germany over comments criticizing Ankara’s policy against Greece

Turkey lashed out at Germany over comments by its foreign minister expressing concern over the recent escalation of aggressive rhetoric against Greece and violations of the country’s airspace.

Turkish government statements “do not help the constructive dialogue and stability in the region,” while “the aggressive rhetoric especially, as well as Turkish violations of the Greek airspace, give cause for concern,” German Foreign Ministry spokesperson Christian Wagner said on Wednesday.

In a statement released on Thursday, the spokesperson for the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Tanju Bilgic, dismissed Wagner’s comments as “unacceptable” and accused him of being “biased.”

“It is unacceptable for the German spokesperson to make unfounded allegations against our country, even though Greece is the party that violates our country’s airspace, conducts flights over our mainland and harasses our airplanes. We would like to remind you that Turkey is not the party that announced that it has frozen meetings [between the two sides], using the latest tension as an excuse. We invite you once again not to make any biased comments,” Bilgic said.
