Brief stop at Ro for Den­dias

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The tiny is­land

of Ro, near Kastelorizo in the south­ern Aegean, is seen from a Chi­nook he­li­copter car­ry­ing De­fense Min­is­ter Nikos Den­dias. The min­is­ter vis­ited the guard post on the is­land on Thurs­day but his trip was not made pub­lic un­til yes­ter­day, when the De­fense Min­istry de­nied re­ports that Turk­ish mil­i­tary jets had im­peded his flight. Kathimerini un­der­stands that Turk­ish radar op­er­a­tors claimed Den­dias’s he­li­copter was in Turk­ish air space when it was fly­ing be­tween Ro and Strongyli. The pi­lots in­sisted they were in Greek air space and the mat­ter ended there.
