Welcome to the Hellenic Defence News Blog

This blog is dedicated to bring you defence related news from Greece in English. Updates will (hopefully) be made on a regular basis and will rely on a host of sources, either TV, newspapers, websites or other blogs.

The reason for creating this blog is simple. There are a host of Greek language sources available on Greek defence issues but there are relatively few up to date sources in English.

The topic itself is an interesting one. Greece currently faces several challenges in its foreign affairs issues and the up and coming elections in Greece could result in a radical shift in current policies. Whatever the outcome of the elections, the challenges facing Greece will continue to play an important role in the country’s defence posture.

This blog will focus on some of the most important issues Greece currently faces. The main issue is the tension with Turkey over the Aegean Sea. Other issues are the “Macedonian” issue, the Cyprus issue and the growing problem of illegal immigration.
