In Greece: Turkish authorities are trying to strengthen their position in Libya and try on the role of the Sultan

28

The Greek press comes out with materials that Athens has to take emergency measures in connection with Turkish activity in Libya. A major Greek publication, Ekathimerini, publishes an article by columnist Vassilis Nedos, in which the author writes the following:


The Turkish authorities are trying to strengthen their position in Libya and try on the role of the Sultan, stopping the forces of Khalifa Haftar. Turkey’s actions are of concern to Russia.

Greek media have noted that in Athens they are skeptical about the statements in NATO circles that the strengthening of Turkey in Libya "can counteract the expansion of Russia's influence in the Middle East."

It is noted that Greece advocates compliance with the arms embargo on Libya. Athens is well aware that the longer the armed escalation lasts, the greater the threat of an influx of new refugees from northern Africa.

Consultations are reportedly being conducted along the line of the Greek Foreign Ministry - US Embassy in Libya. In consultations with the US ambassador in Tripoli, Richard Norland, the issue of de-escalation of the Libyan conflict was discussed.

Athens:

The actions of Ankara should concern the entire North Atlantic Alliance. Against the background of the operation in Libya, Turkey carries out provocations in the Aegean. This does not contribute to good neighborly relations between our countries.

Meanwhile, reports are coming from Libya that PNS troops, supported by Turkey, continue to advance south of Tripoli.
It is assumed that from tomorrow in Libya may begin even more active hostilities in connection with the end of the month of Ramadan.

      Oil has fallen in price, practically no one needs it now, the Hawtor has nothing to pay to the mercenaries (including the Russians), and his Bedouins didn’t hire for free, Russia, the Saudis and the UAE are also aground, and the Turks do not regret bucks.

        Yes, the Russian Federation is aground, the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates too, and the Turks are scattered with bucks. Turkey is fighting on Qatari money, but he is also aground. But in Libya, at least 10 countries ate, and can’t get out anymore, so they are fighting in the red. And it is doubtful that ever money for war will be repulsed

    For 300 years now, the Turks, as children, have been bred by the Anglo-Saxons, setting the rulers of the Ports in other countries and fighting Turkish soldiers.
    So Erdogan was fooled ....

    They write that the main forces are leaving Beni Walid.

    There are also traffic jams from the tarragon (the main thing is that the UAVs do not crash, although probably the Turks will not interfere with the exit).





    The PNS for today has occupied more territories near Tripoli than in the last six months, including yesterday’s advance.

    Tomorrow, it is likely that the international airport will be finally stormed, they are now wrapping it around from three sides.

    To whom, and Greece, the strengthening of Turkish influence is not good. I think Greece will try to take part in the Libyan conflict, not so indirectly, to level out Turkish successes.

        It is not necessary to send funds there, there you can supply information to anyone you need about passing transports, the Turkish Navy and other things. There are full options for indirect participation

    Well, the People's Republic of Turkey and the Turks wanted to de-escalate the conflict and stop the fighting, but intoxicated by local successes and broad foreign support (primarily from the UAE, Egypt, Ks) Haftar dismissed these proposals and practically frustrated all peace negotiations.
    Where then was the understanding of Athens?) They then sat silently and satisfied with their hands rubbing that the Turks grabbed lyuley's pns, and when the situation turned in the diametrically opposite direction, they suddenly became concerned about the escalation of the conflict in Libya, wink

      Well, yes - the Greeks are Byak, and Russia, which in every possible way supports the former (and maybe the acting?) CIA Havtor agent, is NYAS? Do you have something against the position of Athens? Erdogan is a cruel and merciless enemy of the Greeks (and by and large - of all neighboring countries, and even his people), what should they worry about the Turks and their proteges? The more Turks and their proxies heap, the softer it will become in relations with the Greeks, the stronger Erdogan, the worse for Athens and all of humanity. The Greeks and to Russia then cooled down primarily because of our completely stupid flirting with this fascist.

        Yes, I have nothing against the Greeks, just point to their hypocritical policy)
        sobsna as well as the Haftarovites, who decided to cover their failures with the holy month of Ramadan, although they still beat Tripoli about 2-3 weeks ago (all in the same Ramadan) and the holy month did not bother them laughing

        Turks are enemies of the Greeks, and Greeks are enemies of the Turks - here you have not discovered America, but the fact that Erdogan is an enemy of the people .. well, a controversial statement .. during a coup attempt, a million Turks took to the streets to support him, and how does it fit with the fact that he is an enemy of their people, can the enemies of the people have such support among the population?)
        But what about the flirting of the Greeks themselves from the United States? somehow you all get one-sided ..

    From the very beginning I assumed that the whole game of Turkey with Russia in partnership and friendship is all a project of the states
    Turkey itself would not dare to take such actions

    In general, you have to wait until the Americans merge Haftar, and then hit the PNE. winked

    You can land an amphibious assault in the rear somewhere near Tripoli and cut all the supply lines. Or on the ground imitating a retreat, lure them into a trap - accumulate an armored fist and hit the flanks. A la Third Kharkov. good

    Erdogan hopes that he will succeed in becoming a sultan and perpetuate his name.

    It seems that right now there is an active agreement between many, regarding Who will fit in with the Hawtor against the unbelted Edorgan. Or still start to crush the crowd through all sorts of UN, sanctions and all that. For this course of events is now completely unfavorable to anyone.
