Turkish minister calls on EU to condemn Greek minister statements


(MENAFN Turkish Minister for EU affairs, Omer Celik, slammed Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos on Sunday as an "impertinent political comedian" and called on the EU to condemn what he described as provocative statements by the Greek minister.

Celik said Europe cannot ignore Kammenos' statements about a proposed military buildup near the borders with Turkey and criticized the Greek government for putting up with the minister bravado.

"The EU cannot ignore Greek defense minister while reminding the whole world of political principles. It should condemn this person. It should warn the Greek government. Principles are for everyone," Celik said in a series of strongly-worded tweets.

"This 'political comedian' who bears the title of Defence Minister of Greece is constantly making provocations. By remaining silent, Greek government approves this provocateur who talks about enhancing military build-up against Turkey."
