Tsipras, Erdogan Agree to Dialogue on Aegean, Cyprus Issues
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held no-holds-barred talks in Ankara this afternoon and confirmed that they wish to lay the foundations for a bold, historic resolution of decades-long disputes, from the Aegean to the Cyprus problem, To VIMA reports.
A dour-faced PM explained that he was not able to extradite eight Turkish officers implicated in the failed 2016 coup against Erdogan because the Greek judiciary ruled against their extradition and the separation of powers is enforced in Greece.
Ankara blew up the affair today by declaring a bounty of 700,000 euros for each of the eight.
Effectively, it called on bounty hunters to abduct the officers on Greek territory, where they have been granted asylum, and return them to Turkey, a singular breach of sovereignty.
