Turkey threatens Greece and Cyprus
Devlet Bahceli : “If the Greeks want to fall in the sea again, the Turkish army is ready"
The chairman of the extreme right Turkish Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), Devlet Bahceli openly threatened Greece and Cyprus.
Speaking to his party’s parliamentary group on 26 February, Bahceli said: “If the Greek Cypriot administration wants to, it can emigrate to Athens,” he said. “The Greek Cypriots must understand that Cyprus is Turkish, is home of the Turks."
Commenting on the recent increasing tensions between the two countries in the Aegean Sea as well as the longstanding Cyprus issue, Mr. Bahceli said that Turkey would respond to the Greek moves in the Aegean as it had done in the past, Tornos News reports.
“The union is a fantasy… The Greek Cypriot administration wants to unite with Greece. If they do, they must leave the island and emigrate to Athens… Why do the Turks accept such absurdity?” Bahceli said. “Cyprus is legacy of our heroes, it cannot be abandoned,” he stated.
“If the Greek-Cypriots want to unite with Greece at all costs they must leave the island and migrate to Athens and never return back.”
Expending on the Greek-Turkish confrontations in the Aegean and using Greece's top military official's visit to the Greek island of Oinouses claiming it belongs to Turkey.
"Someone must explain to this spoiled brat to not try our patience,” Bahceli said referring to his Greek counterpart.
“The Greek Foreign Minister is making threats," he continued, "Greece besieged with hostility the islands and islets that were not won in the Balkan wars and not to given to them in Lausanne. They must unconditionally put an end to this occupation. Their behavior must be based on international standards."
“If they (Greeks) want to fall into the sea again, if they want to be hunted down, they are welcome, the Turkish army is ready. Someone must explain to the Greek Government what happened in 1921 and 1922. If there is no one to explain it to them, we can come like a bullet in the Aegean and teach them history all over again."
