Turkey claims alleged PKK terrorist was trained in Greece

Turkey claimed a suspected member of the banned Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), recently arrested in Istanbul, was trained in Greece.

Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu claimed on a tweet on Monday that the arrestee was preparing a terrorist attack against the country after receiving training in Lavrio, in south-eastern Attica.

Soylu posted also a blurred picture of the arrestee as well as his name and surname.

Last month Soylu described Greece as a “training center for terrorists.”

Greece has repeatedly dismissed such allegations as “fake news.”

Citizens’ Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos commented on Soylu’s claims describing them as “sad and provocative lies.”

Citing diplomatic sources, Greek media reported that Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias will inform the United Nations and the NATO abbut the Turkish provocations.

The Greek FM reportedly thanked his colleague from the Czech Republic that currently holds the rotating EU Presidency for its support against the recent threats by president Recep Tayyip Erdogan</strong>.

“One of the goals of the Czech Republic is to foster the EU-Türkiye dialogue,” the Czech foreign ministry posted later on Sunday on Twitter.

“Unacceptable threatening of EU member states, like the one addressed to Greece in President Erdogan’s recent public speech, is extremely unhelpful in this regard,” it added.
