Greek defense minister accuses Erdogan of financing terrorism

32
The head of the Ministry of Defense of Greece, Pannos Kammenos, during a meeting with his Israeli counterpart, Moshe Ya'alon, said that official Athens had information about IG oil traffic through Turkish territory. According to Kammenos, expressed during a joint briefing with Yaalon, the greatest flows of smuggled oil produced in the territories of Iraq and Syria controlled by the militants go through Turkey.


Greek defense minister accuses Erdogan of financing terrorism


Kammenos added that this fact itself suggests that terrorist groups operating in the Middle East are being financed through Turkey.

RIA News cites the statement of the Greek Minister of National Defense:
The truth is that most of the oil that comes from the DAISH (IG) comes from terrorists, comes through Turkey, and through Turkey comes the financing of terrorism. It would be good if Turkey decided to change its attitude, not to cooperate with terrorism, not to carry out actions that cause problems in the region, took advantage of funding from the European Union and would be able to stop refugees on the coast of Asia Minor with their own economic advantage. We urge Turkish President Erdogan to turn the Turkish ship to European values.

This statement was made by Panos Kammenos as an answer to the question of whether Ankara can take part, along with Israel, Greece, Cyprus, Egypt and Jordan, in creating a regional anti-terrorism axis - a territory where there is no place for flirting with terrorists.

The Greek minister added that in order to create such an axis of Turkey, it is necessary to begin to recognize the existence of an independent state of Cyprus.

The Minister of Defense of Israel, confirming the words of the Greek colleague, said that the transportation of oil stolen by the IG, has been going through Turkey for a long time. It is strange that the Greek and Israeli authorities had not previously raised this issue, if such information was available ...

      Open secret ... but the most important financier is not Erdogan! Erdogan is just an intermediary! The main sponsors of terrorism, the guys from overseas - that's the main problem!

        Nope, from the mattresses there is power support, but co-religionists from the SA, Emirates, Qatar are pushing.
        By the way, why are all these emigrants eager to go to Europe and why are they eager to join brothers in faith in the same SA or the Emirates? Is it really written in the Koran "raise the suffering one"?

        True? But besides publishing in the press, did Israel do anything? He knows how to bomb so well when he needs it - Syria, Iran, Palestine. And then I did not hear something about the bombing of oil traffic by Israel ...

      Iraq said the same thing the other day.
      The birds stretched out in a jamb. It's good. We are no longer alone in this direction. A node has been created. Now you just won’t be sad that Russia comes up with everything in revenge for the downed plane.

      Along the way, they give voice to their satellites, from NATO - Greece, from friends - to Israel. I hope that this is the beginning of the discharge of Ishak Pasha. Although, perhaps, they want to make it more accommodating on the Kurdish issue, which the Americans oversee

    That does not allow the Greeks to confirm and replicate this information, because they are interested ...

    With the Greeks, everything is clear, they are "at knives" with Brussels and have long been trying to get out of the control of the Euro-American henchmen. Moreover, the Greeks do not like Turks!
    But Israel’s position is already a CALL, even a BELL broadcasting about the loss of amer’s position and a real change in the situation in the region.

      Well, oil sales also went through Israel. And now the feed in the trough is over. You can shit in it and go to another.

      I read your comment, colleague, and a "crazy" thought arose. Could it be, as an option, that raising the old Greek-Turkish problem, at the moment, is a kind of US signal to further deepen the Turkish political crisis, with the aim of eliminating the weakly controlled Erdogan. In order to replace it with a more "obedient" one. repeat
      Do not judge strictly, colleagues, a subjective thought. hi

    I was not surprised by the statement of the Greek minister, but the Israeli minister was surprised. Well, since Israel is already talking about this openly, then Washington's position will be interesting. Probably they will turn on the "Afanas" again and pretend that they did not hear anything. And it is time for Erdogan to pack his things, if he is a man of his word. Although this is hard to believe.

    What did Hitler say? "Anglo-Saxons betray all their allies")))
    Elementaryly, Watson - the chief gave the command to blame, and the fact that this is a former ally does not matter.
    It is important that there is war in the region. Didn’t work in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran?
    So there will be plan "B", if plan "C" does not work, etc. alphabetically - the main thing is that everyone is at war against everyone. This is the main plan of the world plutocracy.

    Oh, come on. I see, here they completely forgot how not so long ago, P. himself "fraternized" with Erdogan, called him and Turkey the most "reliable" and "close" friends of Russia, "time-tested friends." Yeah - "friends". It took to shoot down the plane so that "suddenly" P and his group "suddenly" saw the light, look, it turns out that Erdogan and Turkey are not "friends" at all to us, and even worse - "old geopolitical rivals and enemies" ... wow, and who would have thought ... Obviously, behind the "money" and "contracts" nothing becomes visible .... All this is disgusting.

    Nothing strange. According to Euro values, it rises when profitable. It’s like with Litvinenko. They were silent, silent, and suddenly done under the door. Suddenly Putin gets into a mess.

    There is nothing strange. Both Greece and Israel (not publicly, of course, through third parties) received this oil and safely used it in their needs. So square eyes are not proof of sincerity.
    As regards Cyprus, this territory of Greece is primordial and Turkey should recognize this and withdraw its military personnel and equipment from there.

      By the way, yes. But somehow it turns out badly - Turkey recognizes the occupation of Crimea by Russia and helps Ukraine in its blockade and preparations for the invasion there, but we somehow closed up the issue with Cyprus, forgot about the fluid ... We must say loud and clear to the whole world - Greek Cyprus, Turks - get out of Cyprus!

    If the word of Greece cost anything in the modern world ...... As far as we shout we can hear us !!, but they intentionally do not want to listen to us. About Greece, we can say that in the political and diplomatic sense it does not exist at all. Summer clowning with Tsipras is still fresh in memory.
