No place for games

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greek-Turk­ish re­la­tions are not a stage for po­lit­i­cal games and pub­lic re­la­tions stunts. When it comes to for­eign pol­i­cy­mak­ing, there is no room for sen­ti­ment and per­sonal dif­fer­ences. This ought to be un­der­stood by of­fi­cials in Ankara, which should re­spect in­ter­na­tional law – yet the re­cent spate of Turk­ish vi­o­la­tions of Greek air space and wa­ters with mil­i­tary jets and war­ships shows that this is not the case. That said, of­fi­cials in Athens should keep in mind that hard­en­ing the tone of­ten leads to an es­ca­la­tion on the ground and rarely has a pre­ven­tive ef­fect.
