Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mikotakis appreciated the work of the Turkish and Greek teams through his Turkish participation through his account on social networking sites. “The images that fill us with pain are followed by the images that fill us with hope,” said Mikotakis. “We simply respect the extraordinary efforts of the rescue teams. The Greeks and Turks are fighting side by side to save lives. We are grateful to them for what they have done.”

Broadcast with Kazem Koyuncu part
While all these developments were happening, today’s Greek state television broadcast ERT became the agenda in Turkey, and hundreds of thousands of people watched the footage. During the disaster in said broadcast, Kazim Koyuncu’s song “I Love You” was played in the background. In those moments, the sad state of the Greek servers did not go unnoticed.
A message about the earthquake came from the Kathimerini newspaper. An illustrator from the Greek media responded to the scandalous cartoons published by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo after the earthquake that killed thousands of people in Turkey and Syria, with a cartoon “We are all Turks”. The cartoon, drawn by Dimitris Handsopoulos, was a response to the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. On the drawing, “We are all Turks” was written.

The earthquake, which claimed the lives of thousands of people, “an earthquake in Turkey. There is no need to even send tanks.” He presented it in writing.
