The Turkish Ministry of Defense announced that it had responded immediately to the incident of “harassment” of four Greek F-16 fighters against a Turkish research ship in international waters in the Aegean Sea, according to what Turkish media reported.

Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said: “Our position is clear regarding the harassment of the Turkish research ship by Greek fighters, and what we will do about these harassments is also clear.”

Akar stressed that the Greek fighters carry out continuous harassment, noting that “the recent harassment (with the Turkish research ship) was answered within the framework of the law.”

The Greek fighters approached the Turkish ship “TGG Chema” a distance of 2 nautical miles, and then fired thermal balloons before moving away from the ship’s location.

Sources in the Turkish Ministry of Defense reported that Greek fighters harassed the aforementioned ship from a height of 1,000 meters, and that a response was necessary.

She confirmed to “Anadolu Agency” that a response was made to the Greek militants, without revealing the nature of the response.

The vessel “TGG Sme” will continue its duties in international waters in the northern Aegean Sea, until next March 2, within the framework of its annual program of scientific and technical research in the hydrographic field.

The harassment of the Turkish ship by Greek fighters comes two days after Turkish military sources announced that Athena has practiced many activities to escalate tension in the Aegean Sea, ranging from maneuvers to submarine missions, since the “advisory talks” with Turkey were launched on January 25.

And Greece claimed a few days ago that the research carried out by the Turkish ship is “an act that does not facilitate the improvement of relations between the two countries.”
