Israel’s defense minister: visit to Greece canceled for ‘technical, security reasons’
Accordign to Manolis Kostidis report for kathimerini, Gantz said from Türkiye; “I was forced to cancel my visit to Greece for purely technical and security reasons. It has certainly nothing to do with our relations with Greece. I spoke with the Greek Defense Minister and he understood the situation completely,”
Asked about the possibility of Cyprus acquiring a version of Israel’s highly touted “Iron Dome” mobile air defense system, Gantz said that “nothing has been decided, no decision taken. If there are further developments, of course we will make them public.”
Israel and Türkiye have taken significant steps over the past two years to normalize their relations. They decided, last August, to exchange ambassadors and consuls-general after a four-year hiatus.
