Turkey is an “aggressive” and “sometimes unpredictable” neighbor, Greek leader Alexis Tsipras has told an international forum
Tsipras made the remarks at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland during a Wednesday panel discussion on stability in the Mediterranean.
He pointed to repeated tensions in the Aegean with Turkish military forces and well as strains over a 2016 migration deal with Ankara.
In comments reported by the Reuters news agency, Tsipras suggested other European partners did not understand the realities of sharing a border with Turkey:
“For somebody (sic), it is very easy to be also aggressive if they are living in Luxembourg or Netherlands, because their neighbors are Belgium and Luxembourg, and not Turkey. But it’s not so easy for us.”
