Qr-15, 19 March 2019, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Statement Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs Of Greece, Made With Reference To The Speech Of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Last Week In İzmir In The Context Of Local Elections

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 19.03.2019

The statement made yesterday (18 March) by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Greece, with reference to the speech of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan last week in İzmir in the context of local elections, was also inconceivable, and found odd due to its content and timing.

This statement disregards the historical facts such as Greece’s past attempt to occupy Anatolia and the compensation it paid to Turkey due to the destruction and damage inflicted to Anatolia by its army. As such, the statement is very unfortunate and incompatible with the good neighborly relations as well as the environment of trust that we try to develop with this country.
