Greece: Turkey, the “common denominator” of the region’s unrest


Greek Foreign Minister called neighboring Turkey a “common denominator” of threats to stability in the region, including the use of migrants as leverage to exert geopolitical pressure

ATHENS, Greece – Greece’s foreign minister on Friday called his neighbor Turkey a “common denominator” of threats to stability in the region, including the use of migrants as leverage to exert geopolitical pressure.

Nikos Dendias accused Belarus of copying tactics Ankara used last year when a standoff at the Greek-Turkish land border was sparked by the arrival of thousands of migrants and asylum seekers .

Turkey maintains that it was unfairly excluded from access to Mediterranean mineral resources and denies helping migrants congregate at the Greek border last year.

Egypt and France have largely sided with Greece in the disputes.
