Stefanis on SKAI: What issue is Turkey “burning” for – The main reason for the Sullivan-Kalin contacts

They threaten, the former deputy minister noted for the Turks, the West, seeking to gain the favor of Vladimir Putin.

In the dominant discourse of yesterday’s communication from the US National Security Adviser, Jake Sullivan, with the representative of the Turkish presidency Ibrahim Kalin, just a few days after their meeting in Istanbul, the government adviser focused on issues of critical regions Alcibiades Stefanis.

The dominant reason, the former Deputy Minister of Defense and retired officer explained to SKAI, is the budget to be voted on in the USA and the non-inclusion of a term to activate the Turkish F-16 upgrade.

Celik hurled accusations and derogatory expressions against everyone in Greece, from Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, to the head of GEETHA and the ministers in Greece.

As broadcast from Istanbul by Manolis KostidisOmer Celik stated that “Mitsotakis and Floros are like prefects of foreign countries” and that “the Greek opposition blames the Mitsotakis government for the presence of foreign forces”.
