Yesterday Turkey managed to create another tense day by sending its fighter jets into a Greek firing range. There was more however. Ta Nea newspaper reported that Turkey also interfered with yet another FRONTEX mission. This time the target was a Lithuanian helicopter which was patrolling an area in the northern Aegean for illegal immigrants.
Everyone should remember that FRONTEX is the same organisation which is in talks with the Turks in order to find a way to “cooperate”. And these talks are anything but in Europe’s interests. Turkey is using these talks as yet another way to get its military to have a say in the Aegean.
