The government representative emphasized that in his speech at the UN General Assembly, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, giving the impression that Greece is not terrorized, intimidated and tarnished by the vulgar propaganda of Erdogan.
Greece is not intimidated, it is not intimidated “and obviously it is not tarnished by the nonsense from the non-existent things that were said from the floor of the general assembly (of the UN) yesterday”, the government representative emphasized Giannis Oikonomou commenting on SKAI TV on Erdoğan’s speech in New York.
He emphasized that an unprecedented attempt was made by the Turkish president to spread fake news, complete distortion of reality and vulgar propaganda, with completely unsubstantiated claims contrary to what is really happening.
“What is really happening is that Turkey is systematically violating international treaties that it has signed, using refugees and migrants as tools, giving back – to say the least, to smugglers who put people on boats and their lives are at risk , in contrast to the Greek state that saves human lives and that guards the borders of Greece and Europe as it should”noted Mr. Economou.
He also recalled that Erdogan spoke at the UN in an unfavorable context where:
- We have lifted the arms embargo to Cyprus, “and the Turks are still waiting”.
- There are constant statements by officials that borders, national sovereignty, and international treaties must be absolutely respected.
- The geopolitical and geostrategic power of our country is constantly being upgraded, a fact “that worries the other side”.
SYRIZA should be concerned – You cannot oppose your country
The government representative called her official opposition to be concerned after Erdogan’s speech yesterday but also the developments with the NGO that recognized that the refugees in Evros were not on Greek territory.
He called on SYRIZA to “redefine its coordinates” on these issues as while we are in a very difficult political scene internally and there is toxicity, limits must be set and the propaganda of foreign forces must not be adopted.
“The limits must be reached when, instead of opposing the government, you oppose your country by adopting arguments, propaganda, positions, which send forces alien to Greece and which prove at the end of the day to be false and false”.
