Negative past between Turkey, Greece is history now


Greek people should know that negative relations between Turkey and Greece is history now, says Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on Wednesday, according to a Greek channel, Anadolu Agency reports.

Speaking to Greece’s local broadcaster Skai TV ahead of his visit to the country on Thursday, Erdogan touched bilateral relations between Turkey and Greece.

Recalling his discussion with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras about FETO fugitives in Greece, he said that the Greek PM said he would “extradite the coup plotters in 15-20 days”.

“Unfortunately, these [coup plotters] are still in Greece. We need to follow these very carefully,” Erdogan said, adding that if there is this kind of action against Greece, Turkey also must seize them and extradite them to Greece.

“Justice delayed is justice denied,” he added and said that this is the delayed justice.

“There are few countries that we have done it in a very quick manner, but we couldn’t do it with Greece.”

Touching the recent issues with the U.S., he said that the two countries need to control the developments in Syria and Iraq together.

“We also discussed this over the phone calls, but there is no progress yet.”
