Foreign Ministry spokesperson Konstantinos Koutras stated the following in response to journalists’ questions regarding yesterday’s unacceptable comments from the Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesperson on statements from the state and political leadership of Greece:
“Turkey appears to believe that if history does not agree with its claims, so much the worse for history. But this is too precarious a time for cheap and hypocritical rhetoric.
Obviously, the Republic of Turkey must abandon its obsessions and come to terms with its historical record. Greece will be at Turkey’s side in this difficult task.”
