The Turkish analyst spoke to OPEN and explained why Erdogan will cause a “hot episode”.
While the Hellas is on alert for the eventuality Erdogan to resort to a war scenarioa Turkish analyst estimates that it is unlikely that the president of the neighboring country will not cause some “hot episode».
In particular, the Turkish political analyst and director Ahval NewsYavuz Baidar speaking at OPEN believes that Greece and Turkey are getting closer to a heated episode, as Erdogan has been trapped in aggressive rhetoric.
“Erdogan has re-indulged in re-emerging as a winner. As a leader who only wins. On the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Turkish republic, this was his goal. For this reason, the policy of chaos will continue, increasing the risks of a small or large escalation, at the level of war in the region”, Baidar said about the possibility of a hot episode.
As for the fact that the opposition in Turkey follows the same hateful rhetoric as Erdogan, questioning the sovereignty of the Greek islands, he replied: “This is very dangerous, because they encourage nationalist groups, the mob to take action. They will say: “Look, they are saying the same thing as Erdogan”, so they are right that Greece is attacking Turkey. Let’s take action.”
