Foreign press: Not only Russia, but also Turkey is dissatisfied with the appearance of a new US military base in Greece

37

In the Greek city of Alexandroupolis, an object of the United States armed forces appeared, where the Americans deployed a large amount of weapons, including offensive ones. Russia is unhappy with the appearance of a new US military base in Greece, which is natural, but also Turkey, which also has reasons for this.


This is how Daud Omar Daud argues in an article published in the British-based Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi.

The foreign press notes that the reason for the dissatisfaction of the two countries, which cannot be called allies, are somewhat similar. They relate to the production, storage and supply of natural gas.

Daoud Omar Daoud says, referring to Turkish experts, that the base in Alexandroupolis is planned to be used as a storage facility for gas produced on the Mediterranean shelf. Further, raw materials from this port city can be piped to the countries of southern and southeastern Europe, competing with Russian gas and displeasing Moscow.

At the same time, American companies are trying to explore for gas fields in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, which the Turks are actively hindering, because they would like to earn money on the supply of Mediterranean gas on their own and not share with anyone.

In addition, Turkey is extremely unhappy with the base that Washington is increasingly using Greece to implement its military plans, leaving Ankara "on the sidelines." Erdogan cannot like this, since he considers himself a more worthy candidate for the role of "overseer" in the region.

Thus, the American base in Alexandroupolis is directed not only against Russia, but also against Turkey, as they write in the aforementioned publication.

    Strange, these NATO members are brothers in arms. One NATO country is building a base in another NATO country, and a third NATO country is yelling at the brothers? They must be one! And love each other!

      How is it in the CSTO? Are the CSTO members very, very fond of? Straight brotherly, right? bully
      NATO and the CSTO, in addition to all, perform the functions of reducing the potential for conflict between their member countries. They restrain their members so as not to interrupt among themselves. yes

          And you read what I wrote the answer to. The analogy is obvious! There are contradictions in all unions, sometimes internal contradictions are stronger than external ones. Greece and Turkey have conflicting ancients, nothing new, nothing has changed.

      According to the plan, a NEW NATO helicopter base.
      - leaving Ankara "on the sidelines".
      The escalating deterioration in US-Turkish relations may
      generally lead to the withdrawal of the United States from the Incirlik military base in Turkey. Then, American technology (possibly YaB) will most likely be redeployed to Greece.

        The only suitable base for replacing Incirlik is the port on the island of Crete.
        Previously, it was useful for the States to have a base closer to the USSR.
        Now it is irrelevant.
        Crete has a strategic and relatively secure position in the eastern Mediterranean.

      Well, they are Ooooooooooo strange "brothers" because a brother with a US sign can build a base where he needs to, but other brothers cannot build bases in the US from a word at all. This is not brotherhood but suzerainty.

      And the worse we are, we also have one CSTO country have a base in another CSTO country, which is at war on the border with another CSTO country. And one more CSTO country sends congratulations to the enemy country of another CSTO country, as well as several other CSTO countries.

    Alexandroupoli is located on the border between Greece and Turkey, on the shores of the Aegean Sea. Apparently the American buzz will act as a buffer between these hot guys. It will also guard the LNG terminal.
    The distance to Russia is great, this base has no special functions in this direction.

    Further, raw materials from this port city can be piped to the countries of southern and southeastern Europe, competing with Russian gas and displeasing Moscow.

    Of course, monopolists do not like it when a competitor appears. But for consumers, that's good! good

        City on the border. If the Greeks and Turks exchange "pleasantries" the terminal is under threat. Buzz containment is her main function. I would not mind if there was a Russian buzz there, but the Greeks invited the Americans, they know better what and how. request
        By the way, Bulgaria acquired a 20% stake in the terminal. Shas are building a gas bridge on the border with Greece. Let the Greeks and Turks conduct their showdown at the diplomatic level, and not with weapons. hi

        Turkey, the West has been building up with steroids against the USSR and us for half a century! Then the Russian Federation began to build up and help Erdogan, hoping that he would enter into a conflict with the West. And Erdogan takes advantage of the situation, takes it from both sides. If Turkey's expansionist policy continues into the future, which is very likely, everyone will have big problems, even those who are far away.

        I think the photo needs no comments ...
        Sooner or later, those who have problems with the Turks will have to do it, no matter how “fantastic” it looks now.

          It is not known what the West was doing, but it is known what exactly Bulgaria did in the interests of Turkey, banning Russia from building oil and gas pipelines, and forcing them to run pipes through Turkey.

            It is well known, but clearly not to everyone ... lol For half a century Turkey was a ram of the West against the USSR and the Internal Affairs Directorate in which we were allies. Turkey received generous military assistance from the West. Shas receives strategic gifts from the Russian Federation, in view of the nuclear power plant, gas pipeline, S-400, tourist, etc. This is despite their aggressive actions towards Russia.
            Bulgaria, in the interests of Turkey, banning Russia from building oil and gas pipelines, forced pipes through Turkey

            All this is a consequence of the collapse of the Department of Internal Affairs. By the way, nothing prevented Gazprom from building South Stream directly to Varna, by analogy with Nord Stream. It was necessary to formally divide the project into all parts.

I know perfectly well what actually happened. Chastenko's propaganda distorts things, but on the subject, UP has extolled herself! bully

                        Have you ever read the contract? Almost all have a clause "force majeure circumstances". And the hype in rus-media about some "fines" is more for domestic Russian consumption.
                        Only losses of Gazprom from the Bulgarian policy amounted to $ 800 million

                        The financial country of the issue is very extensive and not a topic for that forum. The UP company consisted of a 50% stake in the Russian and 50% in the Bulgarian side. The losses were on the side, but the losses would be really catastrophic if this pipeline was built contrary to the rules of the 3EP - EU.

    Russia is unhappy with the appearance of a new US military base in Greece, which is natural, but also Turkey, which also has reasons for this.

    Russia, of course, is not happy, knowing the impudence of the United States, which does nothing to defuse tensions in the world, but rather creates it. Climbing into Greece, the United States shows Turkey - if you continue to oppose the US policy, Greece will take your place. For Russia, this is also not good. In the event of a "rift" between Turkey and the United States, which cannot be ruled out, the military base in Greece will block the northern and eastern parts of the Mediterranean Sea. And the Crimea is 750 km away.
    In any case, the additional US base in the Mediterranean is primarily being done against Russia.

    With the head that NATO? USA and VASALI RABI which serves to protect the interests of the owners. There can be no interest in threads in one NATO country that are contrary to the interests of the United States and Malicious.
    Turkey was very interesting to the United States in the 50s of the 20th century, when nuclear weapons were carried only by bombers, today it is not so.
    Greece hijacked the strategy of the Anglo-Saxons, controlling the tragic routes from WWII in place with Italy and Austria. In the Second World War, when the Red Army came to the borders of Greece, it was the first air battle between the United States and the Red Army. The United States attacked the 1944 Red Army near the city of Niš in Serbia.
    Already in Bulgaria, the construction of a new US gas pipeline, which intends to supply gas from the BV and the Mediterranean Sea to Europe.
    Geostrategically, Russia and China should simply control the trading doors of SOUTH-EASTERN EUROPE !!! And how, just through Serbia, ChG, Bosnia, Danube, then Greece and Bulgaria and Albania will remain at a dead end, a blind intestine. wink

    The actions of the United States are understandable - it does not like partners pursuing independent policies. Usually she overthrows them or destroys them, but this time it did not grow together.
