Balkans |  The Greek F-16 official’s words confused Greece

The main agenda of the Greek media is the possible purchase of F-16 fighter jets by Turkey.

The statements of Angelos Syrigos, Deputy Minister of Education and Religious Affairs of Greece, also caused confusion in the country.

“Not now, but it would be good for Greece to buy F-16 fighter jets for Turkey in the future,” Syrigos said in a statement. On the other hand, the United States will decide to sell the F-16 fighter as a result of the elections in Turkey.

In a short time, there was a reaction from both Greece and the United States to this statement of Syrigos. Speaking to Greek media, Eddie Ximenides of the Hellenic American Leadership Council (HALC) called Syrigos’ statements “nonsense”. “Only Turkey’s agents say such things,” said Zimenides. Fortunately, no one in Washington knows Mr. Syrigos, but I do. This does not reflect the opinion of Prime Minister Mitsotakis or Mr. Dendias, he added.

In the United States, in December, articles imposing restrictive conditions for the sale of F-16s to Turkey were completely removed from the defense budget bill.
