Türkiye calls on Greece for ‘common sense,’ to end ‘inciting hatred’

by Anadolu Agency


Türkiye on Friday lashed out against Greece’s recent events held under the “Asia Minor Disaster,” urging Athens for “common sense.”

A Foreign Ministry statement noted that Greece is trying to mislead its public as well as the international community with “lies” and “by distorting historical facts” through the “Asia Minor Disaster” events.

Greece is trying to forget the “defeat it suffered during the occupation of Anatolia and the barbaric crimes it committed against humanity as a result of its adventure a hundred years ago,” the ministry said, urging Athens for “common sense and (to) stop inciting hatred through falsification of facts.”

Türkiye has complained of repeated provocative actions and rhetoric by Greece in the region in recent months, saying such moves frustrate its good faith efforts for peace.

According to Ankara, such harassment is incompatible with a NATO ally, and that Greece is seeking to raise tensions in the region.
