It was stated that the port city in northeastern Greece plays a central role in increasing the US military presence in Eastern Europe.
It was stated that this step, taken by the Pentagon with "enormous arsenals", was carried out as part of efforts to control Russia's "aggression" in the region.
"Fear of Türkiye brought Washington closer"
Welcome to Greece!
Explaining that this situation caused not only Russia but also Türkiye's reaction, "The increase in military activities was welcomed by the Greek government." it was said.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reacted to the military activity in the region.
Erdogan's words reminded
In the article Erdogan's "Who are they set up against?" The answer to the question "against Russia" and Erdogan's reaction to this answer as "we don’t believe it" were reminded.
On the other hand, it was pointed out that most of the NATO members sided with Ukraine, while Erdogan was "always willing to take a different path" and therefore positioned Türkiye as a mediator.
