ICAO Blunder Denied by Government

Several news outlets and blogs picked up on a story published by Eleftherotypia newspaper regarding a blunder committed by the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs. According to the article the Greek side neglected to respond to the International Civil Aviation Organisation on plans to abolish the need for military aircraft to file flight plans when flying over the Aegean Sea. Supposedly the Greek failure to reiterate its stance paved the way for Turkey to legally conduct these flights without the need to submit flight plans.

A spokes person for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has now stated that these allegations are not true and that the need for military aircraft to submit flight plans when flying in the Athens FIT stands.
