US Senator Menendez condemns Turkish President’s aggressive rhetoric towards Greece


US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez has publicly condemned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s continuous aggressive rhetoric towards Greece.

According to Ekathimerini, the senator said in a tweet on Friday: “Erdogan’s continued threats against Greece are entirely unacceptable behaviour for the leader of a NATO country. These absurd intimidations must stop.”

Last December, Erdogan threatened Greece with a missile attack “unless you stay calm.” Just last week, Erdogan again threatened Greece and said the country should “behave well” if it wants to stay out of trouble.

The threats came as result of Turkey’s new military missile called Tayfun, which has a range of 560 kilometres – more than double that of the existing missiles in the country’s arsenal.
