Turkish PM says enemies see Greece as ‘safe haven,’ warns Athens of damaged relations

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Friday that the country’s enemies see Greece as a “safe haven.” The premier also said that “the Greek attitude” regarding individuals Ankara sees as supporters of the 2016 failed coup damages ties, Reuters said. Speaking to reporters after Friday prayers in Ankara, Yildirim said it was unacceptable for people who took part in the abortive putsch to be protected by Greece. Ties between Ankara and Athens, neighbors and NATO allies, have soured in recent months.
