Hulusi Akar

Turkey has denied its ships harassed a French vessel that was part of NATO mission in the Mediterranean Sea, Bloomberg reported.

“The claim is completely unreal,” said Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, according to a statement posted on the ministry’s website on Saturday. Documents that prove Turkey’s assertation have been shared with NATO officials, he said.

On Wednesday Agence-France Presse reported that a French vessel was the target of an “extremely aggressive” maneuver by Turkish ships, citing the French defense ministry.

  1. Who do you think the world will believe? A aggressive invading oppressing bully or a peaceful international order maintainer? Right. But again I recon that Nato and EU will, in their infinite cowardliness, squeeze them self in a Pilates bend to save the soupe and the cabbage. This is the reason why politicians are largely experienced as prostitutes and the people have an avergian of them.
