He participated in the event held at the Ministry of National Defense for Veterans Day. Akar made the following statements at the ceremony:


“Greece, the party that escalates the tension, recklessly accuses Turkey. This is hypocrisy and hypocrisy. Also, this bad neighbor, who complains about Turkey to others at every opportunity, reveals his hostile attitude. Especially recently, some Greek politicians, who are irresponsible, have criticized Turkey-Greece relations. it is poisoning it with new delusions every day.

The fact that our planes, which have been carrying out NATO activities, have recently been radar-locked, shows that Greece has become so arrogant that it disregards NATO’s basic principles and values. As a matter of fact, a former US diplomat stated that he saw this move of Greece as a sign of escalation of tensions and ‘hostile behavior’. Again, immediately after this incident, the Greek Coast Guard fired on a commercial ship, bringing the tension to a new level.”


Describing Greece’s construction of a so-called genocide monument on Kos Island as another provocation by Greece, Akar said, “The real atrocities and genocide were in Tripolice during the period when it rebelled against the Ottoman Empire, of which it was a subject, and in the attempt to invade Anatolia between 1919-1922. It was done by Greece. They are the ones who committed the same atrocities against our compatriots in Cyprus. From this point of view, Greek politicians, if they are looking for a document of shame, it is enough to look in the mirror. These hypocrites not only threaten stability in the region, but also shamelessly manipulate the facts at every opportunity and in any environment. He does not hesitate to complain about Turkey and to take an anti-Turkey attitude,” he said.

Pointing out that Greece abandoned the 1923 Lausanne and 1947 Paris Peace Treaties and piled up arms on the islands with non-military status, Akar said:

“With the provocation of some and unfortunately with the connivance of the EU, they have assumed the role of a spoiled child, fueling instability in the region with unprecedented, irrational and irrational demands and practices, and ruthlessly wasting their own people’s resources out of pure concern for the political future, in a futile effort to take up arms. The Turkish people, who have become a Turkish nation, have expanded 3 times in 7 stages since the day it was founded, accusing Turkey of expansionism by saying ‘Neo-Ottomanist’, despite the fact that it has come under our noses; Babies in the cold and dark waters of the Aegean by ruthlessly pushing refugees back, sinking their boots, trying to intimidate them with assimilation policies and oppression by taking away the rights of the minority, ignoring the Turkish existence, committing a deliberate identity genocide, collaborating with terrorist organizations and giving them all kinds of support. Everyone with intelligence and conscience understands the true face and intentions of those who killed I. History will write that the Greek politicians left people to die and that they had the blood of babies on their hands, not their inventions. The plague of innocent people rests on Greek politicians. As our President has also stated, international institutions should impose strong sanctions on Greece, which has turned the Aegean into a refugee graveyard, and say ‘stop’ to these crimes against humanity.”


Akar said, “We have given the necessary response to all kinds of unfair and unlawful attitudes and actions of Greece on the field and at the table within the scope of reciprocity, and it should be known that we will do so in the future.” In this context, Akar emphasized that Greece was in great error and made the following statements:

“We have never allowed these fait accomplis and impositions. they may have forgotten that they are breathing, but let us remind you in the name of good neighborliness. Realize the seriousness of this business.

Stop going the wrong way. Avoid provocations that will invite disaster. Do not go down into the well with someone else’s rope. Once again, our sincere call to the sane Greeks; It is to come to the dialogue table so that the problems between us can be resolved by peaceful methods, in accordance with international law, within the framework of good neighborly relations and through mutual dialogue.”

Akar stated that they aim for the Aegean and the Mediterranean to be a sea of ​​friendship for peace and stability, and for all wealth to be shared fairly, and continued as follows:

“In this respect, it would be in the interests of both the region and NATO for Greece to see Turkey as a reliable and effective ally and neighbor instead of seeing it as a threat. Our neighbor Greek people should also be sure that Turkey is in peace with Greece. Our expectation from third parties is that they look at the issue impartially and objectively in the light of international law, reason, logic and science. we’re capable of that.”


Noting that Turkey, which is a country that “produces security” in its region and in the world, has followed an effective and constructive policy in the Ukraine crisis from the first day, Akar said, “In this context, Turkey, in the face of the risk of energy and food crisis arising from the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Mr. He carried out an active diplomacy under the leadership of our President,” he said.

Describing the Grain Shipment Agreement signed in Istanbul as one of the greatest achievements of the UN in recent years, Akar said, “Turkey has also clearly demonstrated its critical role and its effectiveness in the diplomatic field with its constructive contribution and hosting to the process.”

Emphasizing that the safe shipment of grain from Ukrainian ports to other countries through the Joint Coordination Center, which started its activities on July 27 under the coordination of the Ministry of National Defense, continues as planned, Akar said, “To date, more than 200 ships and more than 5 million tons of grain have been out of Ukrainian ports.” .
