“Greece is turning the Aegean Sea into a migrant graveyard,” Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias said on the podium of the United Nations General Assembly.
“Greece is turning the Aegean Sea into a migrant cemetery,” Erdogan said in New York late Tuesday, adding that Greece “has increased violence against migrants in the Aegean Sea due to its illegal backlash.” Furthermore, the Turkish president said that apart from the “inhumane backlash”, Greece was pursuing a policy of “political repression and discrimination” against the Muslim community.
Greece’s reaction was swift, with FM Dendias saying: Lost credit for over 10 days. “
He added: “Countries directly threatened by war, those who are bringing war trials, those questioning Greece’s sovereignty over the Aegean islands, are here to discuss good neighborly relations. States occupying foreign territories, including the Republic of Cyprus, are here to discuss the terms of security and cooperation in the Eastern Mediterranean.”
“Greece is a European country that fully respects human rights and, of course, the rights of the Muslim community,” Dendias said, adding, “After all, this is evidenced by the raw numbers. Greece Muslim communities are growing, expanding and thriving.”
The Greek Foreign Minister emphasized:
An official response to President Erdogan from the UNGA podium is scheduled by Prime Minister Kyriakos Misotakis, state broadcaster ERT reported on Wednesday.
