The Associate Professor of International Relations at Panteion University, Kostas Yfantis, said to Realfm 97.8 and Nikos Hatzinikolaou’s show that “the prospect of war depends on when Israel will consider that it has achieved the largest percentage of its strategic goals, which is to neutralize Hamas and clear an area of the threat. I’m not optimistic.”
“To the extent that a strategic rationality prevails, no one else will be involved. Nobody wants to get involved, has no interest in getting involved. Except for Iran and that to the extent that it would see an opportunity to attack Israel and settle their scores,” he added.
“I am not optimistic that the international community has the will but not the ability. Without the US, nothing can be done while the war lasts, but even after,” he noted.
“For Erdogan, Greece is nothing more than a spoiled child of the West. There are other priorities in Ankara that currently favor the continuation and maintenance of the rapprochement. It has to do with the fact that Turkey would not want another front, there is also the issue that it does not want to reawaken the Greek-American lobby in a critical period when its relations with the USA are “on ice”” he commented on the attitude of the Turkish President.
