Storm warn­ing

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

As ev­ery­one in Greece has their at­ten­tion fo­cused on the cabi­net reshuf­fle that was an­nounced last night, not to men­tion the whole broad­cast­ing li­cense af­fair, our re­gion is sink­ing deeper and deeper into un­cer­tainty and chaos with ev­ery pass­ing day. We should be pay­ing closer at­ten­tion to what is go­ing on in Turkey, where the de­ci­sions made over the past few months by Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan, and es­pe­cially since the failed coup in July, have put the coun­try firmly on the path to­ward a se­ri­ous po­lit­i­cal cri­sis. Do­mes­tic de­vel­op­ments in the neigh­bor­ing coun­try in­evitably have an ef­fect on Greece, and this is some­thing we need to re­mem­ber, es­pe­cially now. There is no doubt that the day when Athens will have to make some im­por­tant de­ci­sions is just around cor­ner, so the gov­ern­ment needs to sit down with the op­po­si­tion and dis­cuss the for­ma­tion of a na­tional strat­egy, be­cause the sit­u­a­tion is ex­tremely se­ri­ous.
