It’s all Turkey’s fault according to Greek MEP

The Greek Christian-democrat MEP Georgios Koumoutsakos accused Turkey of causing the economic collapse of Greece because of the huge military expense the country makes because of a military threat from Turkey.

“Greece is forced to buy weapons because of the threats coming from Turkey”, the Greek MEP is alleged to have said.

During the discussion on the report on Turkey at the European Parliament, Belgian MEP Philip Claeys allegedly said that Turkey is not carrying out the reforms asked for by the EU. He went on to say that the country is moving backwards, and this is because there are murders, forced weddings and the presence of their troops in north Cyprus. The MEP said that because of this negotiations with Turkey for EU membership should be stopped.
