Greek defense minister slams Turkey over air space violations

TAGS: Diplomacy, Defense

Defense Minister Panos Kammenos lashed out against Ankara on Tuesday over two air space violations by Turkish jets that occurred during a memorial service for a Greek airman who was killed 11 years ago when his F-16 jet collided with a Turkish Phantom.

The violations were carried out by two Turkish F-16s over the central Aegean.

Kammenos said it was an act of disrespect that not even the “most barbarous army in the world” would commit.

Meanwhile, the Turkish naval exercise in the Eastern Mediterranean ends on Wednesday.
