Turkey criticized France for sending combat aircraft to Cyprus

23

Turkish Foreign Ministry reacts tough to maneuvers aviation French Air Force. Recently, French aircraft landed at one of the air bases in Cyprus. This is due to the fact that French military personnel are taking part in joint exercises with military personnel from Cyprus, Greece and Italy. The exercises started the day before and will end on Friday 28 August.


The Turkish Foreign Ministry believes that by such actions France violates the 1960 treaty.

Turkish Foreign Ministry:

France is thereby encouraging Greece, which is responsible for escalating tensions in the eastern Mediterranean, to further escalate the situation in the region.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry says that Ankara "intends to suppress the attempts of those who seek to exclude Eastern Cyprus and Turkey from the processes in the eastern Mediterranean."

The Turkish Foreign Ministry reacted so zealously due to the fact that Turkey was not invited to the joint exercises that are being held in the region. The main phase of the Greek-French-Italian-Cypriot teachings will take place south of the Greek island of Crete.

In France, the claims of the Turkish authorities have not yet been commented on at the official level.

    The Turks will destroy NATO. Trump said the other day that he was going to withdraw the United States from the aggressor bloc. IMHO it's high time.

      Not. Everything looks like an educational squeezing Turkey out of NATO, and not as major differences within the bloc. Most likely, both of them are simply puffed up for their ambitions. This NATO will not go anywhere, it will only swell even more due to the retraction of new cannon fodder into its orbit. They need Turkey. In addition, they only leave this organized criminal group ... well, as they leave ... they endure.

      Is he going to sell the products of his military industry to Mars instead of Europe? Or is he even more cunning and wants to create a shortage of F-35s on the military market (oh, horror!) In order to raise the price on them? What kind of gesheft will they get from this? Something for me :)

      "Trump said the other day that he was going to withdraw the United States from the aggressor bloc." ////

      Trump was going to "zero" wink NATO and create NATO-2.
      That is, withdraw the United States from NATO and declare:
      "America is creating NATO-2. On our terms.
      Who wants (and whom America will accept) - go ahead. "
      There is some reason for this. NATO was created many years ago. There are countries that have changed their views during this time.
      There are countries that are listed but do nothing for the bloc. Etc
      Some countries may want to create their own union without the United States.

        I'm starting to guess: Russia and Israel. Not? Then the RF and the FRG. Also no? Israel and China? I understand nothing.
        Start over. This is NATO-2 against whom it will be friends?

      Are you talking about Turkey ?? !! As far as I remember, the total salvo of the Turkish fleet in terms of power is almost fivefold exceeds the salvo of the Black Sea Fleet. NATO is not stupid, no one will push such an ally into the arms of the enemy.

        And sho, you would still have something in common \ summed everything up and compared with a separate part of Russia.
        Empty comparison.
        Turkey is the main player in its region, but nothing more. There are not one or two of them now. BUT, with global, serious players, he CAN'T seriously compete, for objective reasons. Global players, one, two, and it worked out and they butt among themselves, to the delight of everyone else, who have more opportunity to prove themselves.

    Perhaps it is worth answering with joint exercises of the fleets of Turkey and Russia, while NATO warships are in the Black Sea?

    by such actions France violates the treaty of 1960
    It is not surprising that the EU has been pestering Turkey's request for admission to the union for more than 20 years, after which it made it clear that it does not want Turkey (Turkey) to join the EU. Over the past few years, Erdogan has managed to quarrel with many in NATO, get involved in two wars, and this can be considered only the beginning.

    Of course, the Turks themselves are pretty. They never violate anything. And only treacherous neighbors strive to offend them. laughing

    France's actions do not contribute to the establishment of world peace, unlike Turkey, which is a zealous peacemaker. Pure spiders in the bank.
