The measure includes the purchase of German torpedoes, three frigates and six French ‘Rafale’ fighters, according to the Greek Parliament.
Such measures are justified because treaties and geography are being falsified, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis considered, in reference to Turkey’s actions in the region.
Recently, several senior Turkish government officials pointed to Greece’s loss of sovereignty rights over numerous islands in the eastern Aegean Sea given the militarization of the area.
Ankara claims that militarization of the islands is not allowed under the Lausanne and Paris Treaty.
For their part, the Greek authorities point out that Turkey has deployed military aircraft on the west coast of the islands, which has led to an increase in Athens’ military capabilities in the event of the need to defend itself.
