"We have to deal with the issue with Greece without tensions," said Omer Celik

A few days after the Erdoğan – Mitsotakis meeting at the NATO Summit in Vilnius and with the Turkish press talking about a new page in Greek-Turkish relations, Omer Çelik maintains his aggressive rhetoric.

According to what SKAI correspondent Manolis Kostidis reports, the representative of the rulingΑΚ party, Omer Celik, emphasized that it is not possible to enter into discussions when the demilitarization of the islands has not taken place because it is an issue that interlocks the other issues that there are.

“Turkish minority in Thrace”

Specifically, Celik said: “Governments are meeting. We must deal with the issue with Greece without tensions. When you militarize the islands, there is nothing to do. The issue of the militarization of the islands creates a very high tension that locks in other issues as well. There may be some difference for a region, to do this or the other.”

Celik also speaks of a “Turkish minority in Thrace”, refers to the NATO base in Alexandroupolis and says that “the Greek Coast Guard is holing boats and killing migrants in the Aegean”. As he states, if these things continue on the part of Greece, something else will happen and not an agreement.

Celik continues his threats

“We are constantly discussing the protection of the rights and interests of the ‘Turkish minority’ in ‘Western Thrace’ and the respect of their rights. There is a will to keep the issues in a specific context.

But if you add weapons to the issue or build a base in Alexandroupolis which is under our noses, if you continue to hole inflatables in the Mediterranean to kill people or if you militarize the islands, then something else will happen,” he said.
