For Turkey’s increasingly close relations with Britain the Turkish mass media celebrate, in the shadow of the “diplomatic foul” of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to his Greek counterpart Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

“Great Britain and Turkey have friendship, rapprochement, they move together in many things. The British support Turkey in many issues, so they do with the Eurofighters” it is noted.

Britain maybe grant Type 23 frigates in Turkey, it is still emphasized according to the Turkish media as reported by Manolis Kostidis. There is close political, diplomatic and defense cooperation, they emphasize to the neighbor. The British fleet currently has 12 such frigates.

“In recent years between Turkey and Great Britain there is a rapprochement, a friendship. They also move together on the international stage. And this approach seems likely to bring results in the Eurofighter issue. Is it possible to prevent the treachery that Germany is going to put us through? Great Britain and Spain which are part of the Eurofighter consortium say Yes, let’s give the Eurofighter fighters to Turkey. How will they convince the Germans? The English say “first let’s agree among ourselves” and declared “leave it to us to convince the Germans” There have been developments in the last few hours. In recent years, the British have been supporting Turkey on many issues, so also on the issue of aircraft, the British are working in our favor” said SOZCU TV presenter Ekrem Achikel.

“London has found an opportunity for close cooperation with Turkey, there is close cooperation on many issues” commented Manolis Kostidis. Regarding defense cooperation, Turkish Defense Minister Yasar Guler met last week with his British counterpart.
