We will buy F-35 when the budget allows: Greece warned Turkey


Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis made it clear to Turkey that Athens wants dialogue, warning that they have strong armed forces. Mr. Mitsotakis said this in response to dozens of provocations carried out, according to him, by Turkish militants.


"Military Review" already wrote about the military plans of Turkey and the indignation of Greece and several other countries by the policy of Ankara. In particular, the November agreement of the Government of Libyan National Accord on the so-called maritime border with Turkey was pointed out, which caused sharp criticism of a number of countries, including Greece.

The Greek prime minister “left the window open”, pointing to the possibility of applying to the International Court of Justice in The Hague regarding the definition of marine zones and the continental shelf in the Aegean Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean. But what if all the arguments in the dispute with Turkey are exhausted, that is, a political dialogue is impossible?

However, Mitsotakis emphasized the need to resolve the dispute with Turkey, but not under pressure close to blackmail. In the "hot" scenario, there will be no winner.

Curious is the following: Kyriakos Mitsotakis said that he intends to discuss with US President Donald Trump in Washington the acquisition of fifth-generation F-35 fighters, when "budget conditions" allow this. At the moment, Greece does not have the means to purchase the previously announced number of F-35 (it was a question of several squadrons).

    Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis made it clear to Turkey that

    so far, it’s clear that in “beloved wives” they want to go to someone!
    However, this is understandable. In the confrontation with the Sultan, the Greeks have little to shine, and there is not even a little help from their gay partners there, absolutely NO!
    Involuntarily you will rake to someone mighty! True, this mighty reputation is not ah !!! Well, it's hard to find another.

      Another feint counting on someone else's help. I remember relatively recently Greece turned to Russia to help with money, since the Greeks managed to accumulate a fabulous public debt. But we ourselves and then and today the same GDP per capita was and remains below Greek. hi

          They will not be built without permission from Turkey, since the pipe will pass through the Turkish zone of the site, between Cyprus and the Greek islands.

    I’m wondering what the international court will consider if the convention on the law of the sea, which the Greeks follow, is not signed by Turkey.

      And Libya signed, but not ratified
      But this is not an obstacle for considering cases in the UN International Court of Justice; other legal norms and traditions may be used there.
      Tribunal for the Law of the Sea is another matter
      But this is a different organ, it is in Hamburg, not the Hague

        for consideration is not an obstacle, but for making a decision in one direction or another? not a specialist, but I think that in the absence of uniform rules for determining the shelf, with which all parties agree, such a thing can be considered for a very long time, dismissed by jurisdiction, slow down according to procedures, appeal, etc.

          In the UN International Court of Justice, cases are considered only if the parties agree in advance with the court’s decision, or for each case prior consent is required, or else they give consent in advance for consideration of certain categories of cases.
          Sources of law applicable by the Court [edit | edit code]
          In considering a case and making decisions, the Court applies the sources of law that are defined in article 38 of its Statute, namely

          international conventions and treaties;
          international custom;
          general principles of law recognized by civilized nations;
          court decisions and doctrines of the most qualified specialists in international law.
          In addition, if the parties to the dispute agree, the Court may decide the case on the basis of the principle ex aequo et bono, that is, in fairness, without limiting itself to the applicable rules of international law.

          Disputed Jurisdiction [edit | edit code]
          The UN International Court of Justice is entitled to consider a case only if the relevant states have agreed to become a party to the proceedings before the Court (principle of consent of the parties). A state may express its consent in the following ways [5] [6]:

          Special agreement. It is concluded by the parties to the dispute when they agree to jointly submit the dispute to the Court.
          Article in the contract. Some treaties contain articles (jurisdictional articles) in which the state party agrees in advance to recognize the jurisdiction of the Court in the event of a dispute with another state party regarding the interpretation or application of the treaty in the future.
          Unilateral statement. Statement by a State party to the Statute of the Court on the recognition of the jurisdiction of the Court as binding on any other state that has undertaken the same obligation.
          The condition for referring a case to the Court is contained in the Statutes of such specialized organizations as FAO, WHO, UNESCO, conventions on crimes of an international nature, conventions in the field of international environmental law and some other international treaties [7]. A total of approximately 300 treaties provide for the jurisdiction of a court to resolve disputes related to their application or interpretation.

    Well, the trunks are already counted and recounted years ....... repeat The Sultan relies on himself, and the Greeks on his uncle. Well, they will pay uncle, and rake from the Sultan. request
    The Greeks should have a strategy in this matter, for 50 years they should have worked out opinions, and now the bloc will put together the anti-Turkish countries who have claims to the Turks. Israel, Bulgaria, Syria, Georgia, Armenia, Cyprus. Everyone who borders Turkey has grievances. angry The salvation of drowning, the work of the drowning repeat and the United States, there are their interests. For their base in Greece, the presence of Cyprus and the islands in Greece is not necessary. Because of the smallness, to spoil the relationship with Turkey. repeat

    A certain Austrian quartermaster, not slowing down after the Utrecht peace
    a feast to five of his comrades-in-arms, previously ordered his lord to serve
    there are five kilos on the table, according to the number of expected ones. And as one of the guests, more opposed
    having other agility, ordered his share, instead of one, two
    sprats, then the quartermaster, seeing that through this is the bravest of associates
    Bremsenburg-von-Ekstadt lost his portion at all, exclaimed:
    "My sovereigns! Who took two sprats?"

      Israel didn’t get much gas, but very much - on its Mediterranean shelf. For a while, even Russia and Azerbaijan managed to be afraid of its development ..- but apparently they decided not to go into dismantling and dumped it in a good way.

      There is a lot of gas on the entire shelf of the eastern Mediterranean.
      From Egypt to Turkey. Israel was the first to find it, and then the rest of them got a little fuss.
