Greek Foreign Ministry’s stern retort to Erdogan’s tirade

The Greek Foreign Ministry has issued a stern announcement in the wake of jingoistic rhetoric and saber-rattling by Tayyip Recep Erdogan:

Greece is not going to be swept away in the instrumentalisation of foreign policy to serve domestic political expediencies, or use history with terms that are offensive to neighbouring countries. Such unacceptable references undermine the trust we hope to build between our countries and are not in line with the European perspective that the Turkish leadership claims to support.
