Alternate Minister of Foreign Matters Miltiadis Varvitsiotis’ interviews upon “Naftemporiki TV” and RealFM Radio Station- highlights (16. 01. 2023)

When asked about the united states President’s proposal to Our elected representatives for the F-16 sale in order to Turkey and F-35 in order to Greece, the Alternate Minister underscored to RealFM and journalist Katia Makri that the West has not decided whether or not Turkey is an ally or even an adversary and that it is trying to maintain a romantic relationship with Ankara through rebalancing moves. He recalled that whenever New Democracy and Kyriakos Mitsotakis took over the country’s administration, Turkey participated in the F-35 program but it has now been reversed, with Greece joining this program and Turkey trying to join the particular F-16 program.
“The national stance and the national front against Chicken must remain unbroken plus national issues must be kept out of the election debate”, Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, Miltiadis Varvitsiotis said, speaking today to Filippos Filippakopoulos on Naftemporiki TV. He added that people are showing confidence in the government’s armament program and its handling of the Turkish threat.
Regarding Turkish provocations plus continuous threats, Mr. Varvitsiotis stated that we are responding with seriousness and in a robust manner, we are arming ourself, expanding our strategic plus military alliances, and making our country an integral part of the Western security system. Whenever asked to comment on the particular recent reports about the Chief of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff (HNDGS) as per the wiretapping case, he expressed his full self-confidence in General Konstantinos Floros, below whose leadership – when he said – the Military have now at their disposal a huge armament program, which they could not have imagined in the past and that is being implemented with total transparency through inter-state rather than commercial agreements, as was your case in the past. The Alternate Minister added that the General is a person who has earned the trust of the Greeks and in whom every Ancient greek citizen sees a Ancient greek officer who stands up to the circumstances and faces Turkish provocative conduct on a daily basis with vitality, diligence and courage.
