Brief stop at Ro for Dendias
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.
