Greece is ready to host the US military withdrawn from Turkey

Greece may deploy US military bases on its territory if for any reason they are forced to leave Turkey. This was stated by a Greek diplomatic source.


Answering a question from journalists about Greece’s ability to deploy US military bases on its territory, he said that Greece could place any object and was ready for it. According to him, if Turkey deprives the Americans of their right to be based at Incirlik, they can freely be accommodated in Greek territory.

If you ask if we will serve the bases, then we are a NATO member country, and as a result, the needs of NATO can always be served by Greece within the framework of the Greek Constitution and law. Regarding bilateral relations with America, we have signed a defense agreement. If the United States wants to expand its defense capabilities in Greece in the future, the Greek government will discuss this in a positive spirit.

- he said.

Answering the question about the possibility of deploying nuclear material on Greek territory weapons, withdrawn from the Incirlik base, the diplomat said that he could not confirm the fact of the presence of such weapons at the Turkish base, so it was difficult to answer.

Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu threatened the United States with closure of the American military Turkish bases Incirlik and Kureggik in the event of the imposition of sanctions against Ankara due to the acquisition of S-400 air defense systems.

    Very well! Another reason for Turkey to show NATO a figure of 3 fingers. And Greece should pay for the maintenance of the Amerov air base!

        There is simply no analogue to Turkish bases.
        In general, everything that happens is a gigantic mistake of the Americans, caused by the belief in their exclusivity.

          Where everything is happening?
          I worked with amiks and I work, I did not particularly see those who considered themselves "exceptional". If you know how to work and you prove it to them, then the attitude towards you as a master of your craft and without prejudice will come for advice. Even those who graduated from West Point, and humanly, even if they talk with the younger staff.
          And not all of them "well, stupid" guys from their JCS are professionals, but because of their current commander-in-chief and because of his jumps, the guys are in limbo. And they don't make much noise there - they know that there will be elections, but there everything can change. There it is not "henceforth and forever and ever".

            So no one talks about relationships at the level of ordinary citizens. We are talking about interstate relations at the level of which the United States prefers to communicate with all countries from a position of strength and dictatorship.

            Everywhere. Some stupid things.
            But now we are discussing Turkey. Supporting terrorists who regularly carried out "actions" in Turkey and thinking that a NATO ally with the second largest army would be lost was a completely stupid idea. And from this, in fact, it all started. First, the Kurds, then the strange antics with the Patriots, then, apparently, being involved in an unsuccessful coup attempt ...
            And Turkey has not only the second army in NATO, they have a unique geopolitical position.

            Who cares. The main thing is that they are led by rams. Although no, it’s more like moths with a microbrain, not able to calculate the consequences of their actions even by one step.
            It got to the point that even a patriot like Brzezinski in the 12th year declared that the United States had lost a sense of proportion in foreign policy. And since then things have gotten worse.

            When, with the full support of the United States, terrorists come to power in Egypt, and they also support the "Brothers" putsch in Syria, this is already beyond any "red lines" of madness

        Greetings, namesake hi
        Why should they look? Air force base in Larissa. American MQ-9 "Reaper" drones and American F-22 stealth fighters are already based there. It is possible that the local airfield in the literal sense can become a reserve for the United States in case of a rupture of the complicated relations between Washington and Turkey and the forced need to leave Incirlik airbase.

          And what should they do in Greece. They have a base for South European tasks in Italy.
          Turkey is an ideal place to control Syria, Iraq, Iran and the Persian Gulf.
          If the Turks withdraw bases, then for each passage in their airspace will need to request permission. You don’t fly so much.

          And yet such gestures from Greece indicate that they fear a war with Turkey. By deploying additional forces, the US wants to protect itself in this way.

    Ingirlik is a more suitable base for airspace control in the Middle East than a base near Larisa. The deterioration of relations between the United States and Turkey allowed the signing of an agreement between Greece and the United States on the construction of several new bases in Greece and the expansion of the Court's base in Crete.
    Despite the fact that the agreement on new bases was signed only now, the US strategic drone MQ-9 Reaper has already been deployed at the Greek airbase on the 110th air wing in Larisa. Helicopter base will be created in Alexandroupolis. And in Stefanovikio, under the US Volos, attack helicopters are deployed. The military airport near Count Ignatievo will also expand to accommodate the new Bulgarian F 16 Block 70.
    I personally suggest that the Americans will also talk with Georgia about the military base there.
