NATO’s ‘problem child’ threatens Greece again.
Germany and Brussels will probably send Erdogan more money. 🤨
– Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned Greece to stop issuing empty threats over his country’s planned oil and gas drilling operations in the eastern Mediterranean, which Athens says violates Greek sovereignty.
In an interview with Turkey’s TRT channel, and sitting in front of map showing drilling areas that are within Greece’s continental shelf, Erdogan advised Greece to learn its limits:
“If you don’t know your limits, then what Turkey would do is obvious.”
“Greece does not remain calm, and throws empty threats at us. It comes out and says baseless things. Who is this country talking like that? Who do they think they are talking to?” the Turkish President asked.
“You (Greece) had better collect yourself, and know your place. If you don’t know your limits, then what Turkey would do is obvious.”
* Speaking of NATO, the decision to admit Turkey was made some 69 years ago in a much different world.
One would think membership should be reviewed at least once every ten years or so?
Currently, NATO has no expulsion mechanism.
Somehow we find this reckless and irresponsible.
