Turkey’s President urges Greece to ‘behave well’

·

Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Greece to “behave well” if they want to stay out of trouble while praising the strength of Turkey’s missile weapons this Wednesday, January 4 2023.

According to Ekathimerini, Ergodan addressed the parliamentary group of his AK Party and said “Now that we have made our own missiles, the Greeks are in panic”.

The statement is a second of its kind, with Turkey’s president previously threatening Greece with a missile attack “unless you stay calm” last December.

In his address, Erdogan referred to the dangerous missiles called Tayfun, which is Turkish for “typhoon”.

Last October Turkey performed a test fire over the Black Sea confirming the Tayfun had a range of 560 kilometres – more than double that of the existing missiles in the country’s arsenal.

Despite Erdogan’s threat he tempered his aggressive rhetoric and said, “We have nothing to do with Athens. We do not touch those who do not touch us.”
