Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar has accused Greece of a "two-faced" policy, in the shadow of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris, during which France's full support for Athens was reaffirmed. against the escalating threats from Ankara.

"They are trying to tarnish the image of Turkey. They try to take advantage and distort every fact, to influence third parties with lies and slander and to complain about Turkey in third countries," the Turkish Defense Minister said in his statements.

"In this sense, it is not wrong to say that a truly two-faced policy is being followed. There is a hypocritical policy. On the one hand, we insist on dialogue, they act like they understand it and go to answer, but on the other hand, as soon as they are left alone, they continue to complain about Turkey, based on lies and denial, every time they talk to third countries" Hulusi Akar continued and added: " Don't they have a mirror in their homes? Let them look in the mirror. Sometimes people look in the mirror and see the truth. And maybe they are ashamed. There cannot be such a two-faced attitude, such hypocrisy."

Turkey's Defense Minister claimed that "we are very patient. But despite our well-intentioned efforts, unfortunately our neighbor Greece with some provocative actions and statements continues to increase the tension, and we are trying to do everything to prevent this."
