Navtex issued on request of Greek coast guard


The government has denied reports according to which the Greek Navy issued a navigational warning, known as Navtex, for the area around the island of Kastellorizo in the southeastern Aegean, for a live fire-naval exercise from Monday to Thursday.

The Navtex was issued for a scheduled exercise on the request of the Hellenic Coast Guard, according to reports Monday.

The original information was based on a report by Athens-Macedonia news agency Sunday.
