Greece goes to France for weaponry in spite of US


(MENAFN) According to a Greek minister, the United States' hesitation to provide Greece with modern munitions and weaponry systems is driving Athens to go to France.

In a recent radio interview, Angelos Syrigos, the Greek deputy education minister, revealed that Athens has been attempting to develop connections with Paris, in order to gain access to weaponry that it has been unable to take from Washington.

Syrigos, a scholar of global relations and Turkish-Greek connections, observed “The US has traditionally observed a balance of power between Turkiye and Greece.”

Turkey has frequently cautioned Greece to avoid entering a military conflict, instead they should offer to resolve all unresolved concerns through negotiation, even those in the Aegean, the Eastern Mediterranean, and Cyprus.
