DUBAI: Turkey has accused Greece of harboring and aiding extremist organizations including the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, Al-Arabiya TV reported.
It’s a claim Greece denies, saying that Turkey is causing further unrest in the region and trying to harm its image.
Head of the Turkish Presidency’s Communication Department Fahrettin Altun said in a tweet that there were extremists hiding in an alleged refugee camp in Greece.
He added that the militants were planning to launch suicide attacks against Turkey at a time when Greece lets refugees die in the Aegean Sea, he said.
Alton attached with his tweet a three-minute video clip explaining how some foreign countries assisted extremist groups.
The video clip also indicated that Ankara was appealing to NATO-member states, including neighboring Greece, to support all efforts made by Turkey against extremist organizations.
Earlier, the Chief of Staff of the Greek Army Lt. Gen. Konstantinos Floros said Turkey’s actions were bringing instability to the region.
The Greek Ministry of Immigration recently accused Turkey of trying to cause “escalation” in the Aegean Sea, with “dangerous maneuvers” and encourage migrants to head to Greece, the main transit gateway to the European Union.
