Turkish Greece Tension: The threat of another major war in the world has increased

Amid the Russia -Ukraine war, the threat of another war has increased. Tension is increasing as Turkey threatens its neighboring country Greece.

Turkey threatens Greece: It has been more than six months since the terrible war between Russia and Ukraine. But the war has not stopped yet. At the same time, another big war is about to break out in the world. Turkey has threatened neighboring Greece. President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened that Greece should be prepared to suffer the consequences of war. Turkey has said that its forces will not hesitate to enter Greece at any moment if its patience ends.

Turkey threatens Greece with war

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who wants to call himself the caliph of the Islamic world, is currently on a foreign visit to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia. He said on Tuesday that Greece had deployed troops and weapons to the disputed islands, violating international agreements. They have also installed modern air defense systems and radars there. These radars lock on and monitor Turkish fighter jets flying. This situation is not acceptable to Turkey.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also said that if Greece disagrees and create a threat to Turkey increases, its army will enter (Greece) anytime, and this is not a fantasy. Turkey will not compromise its security and its need. Erdogan said he would not back down from using force if it fell.

'Turkey should think 3-4 times before attacking.'- FM of Greece

Greece has also responded to Erdogan's threat. Greek Foreign Minister Nicos Dendias said, 'Those who are talking about attacks on us, should think about the consequences 3-4 times. We can defend our country and maintain its integrity. They will get the same answer if they dare to enter our country. After that, mayhem ensues, mind you.

Turkey deployed troops on the island.

Greece's foreign minister said ''Turkey had massed forces near its eastern Aegean islands. Their fighter jets also fly in the air, violating Greece's airspace. Their navy is also constantly violating Greece's territorial waters. These significant issues show how arbitrary Turkey is in this area''.

This debate has been going on for decades

Turkey and Greece have been at loggerheads for decades. The most significant point of contention is the Aegean Sea, which lies between the two countries. There are many islands in this sea that are under the control of Greece. These islands are off the mainland of Greece and close to Turkey. Turkey claims the islands as its own due to their proximity to the mainland. The two countries also have profound differences over the right to fly over the Aegean Sea.

The war took place three times

The two countries have been at war three times in the last half-century. However, after the intervention of other neighboring countries, the matter cooled again. Now due to the threat of the President of Turkey, there are fears that the spark may once again fall between the two countries. Greece has bought Rafale fighter jets from France and is also arming itself with other weapons in anticipation of a Turkish attack. This has angered Turkey, and it says it is a threat to national security. Turkey also has elections next year, with Recep Tayyip Erdogan rumored to be trying to ignite the spark to take the lead.
