A barrage of violations in the Greek FIR have been carried out over the last few days by Turkish aircrafts that are being intercepted by Greek pilots.

When asked about the tension in the Aegean, in an interview on Alpha TV, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras assured the Greek people that “Greece has never had stronger alliances and geostrategic position than it has now.”

“There is no need for fear or worry. We are a country of dialogue but we will not allow anyone to violate our sovereign rights by anyone. Our neighbors should understand that the tensions within their country and their tactics lead to a dead end and have consequences”, he stressed.
