Ankara, Turkey – Turkey slammed Greece over its perceived exclusion from the regional Philia / Hostile Forum that convened in Greece, while accusing Greece of harboring “maximalist” aspirations in the Aegean and Mediterranean.

The statements made at the Philia / Hostile forum by the Greek foreign minister are not reminiscent of friendship; they resemble an approach that creates an atmosphere of hostility against Turkey under the disguise of friendship.

Turkey accused Greece of snubbing Turkey and Turkish Cypriots, adding that the countries it invited to attend the forum “have problems with Turkey.”

Turkey says If Greece and the Greek Cypriots dream that they will materialize their maximalist positions, we guarantee that these dreams will turn into a nightmare.
