Jets vi­o­late air space as min­is­ter meets pre­mier

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Seven Turk­ish air­craft vi­o­lated Greek na­tional air space 15 times in the north­east­ern, cen­tral and south­east­ern Aegean yes­ter­day, the lat­est in a se­ries of in­frac­tions. The Turk­ish jets, five of which were fly­ing in for­ma­tion and two sep­a­rately, also vi­o­lated the Athens Flight In­for­ma­tion Re­gion four times. The air­craft were not armed and there were no dog­fights, ac­cord­ing to Greek de­fense of­fi­cials who said the Turk­ish jets were chased off by Greek planes. The trans­gres­sions came on the same day that Turkey’s Min­is­ter for Euro­pean Af­fairs Omer Ce­lik met with Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras in Athens for talks that fo­cused on the refugee cri­sis.
