Sc- 32, 4 May 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Allegations Of Harrassment Of The Helicopter Of Greek Ministry Of National Defence By Turkish Aircraft
Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 04.05.2020
Our fighter aircraft have performed an identification mission as part of their routine activities in the Aegean and harrassment of the helicopter with Minister of National Defence of Greece onboard is out of question. Dramatizing routine flights in a way to create tension is not to the benefit of Greece. Instead, these issues should be taken up within the process of confidence-building measures launched between the Ministries of Defence of both countries.
