The Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the invasion of two Turkish fighters within 2.5 nautical miles of a city in the northeastern part of Alexandroupoli on Friday, calling the case an “unprecedented violation of national sovereignty.”

“This action is a very clear escalation of Turkey’s provocation,” the ministry said in a statement.

The statement also noted that Foreign Minister Nicholas Dendias had instructed Themistocles Demilis, the ministry’s secretary-general, to submit “an immediate and powerful protest with the Turkish ambassador.”

The ministry said the invasion was “part of Turkey’s efforts to promote neo-Ottoman revisionism in violation of the basic rules of international law.”

“This undermines NATO’s cohesion and immediate priorities, and poses a clear threat to the European Union at a critical time, as the port of Alexandroupoli is an important transportation hub for strengthening our allies. “

The ministry said it would notify “our allies and partners, and the EU, NATO and the United Nations” of the incident.
