Turkey denies harassing copter with Greek defense chief
Turkey on Monday denied allegations that Turkish forces had harassed a helicopter carrying Greek Defense Minister Nikolaos Panagiotopoulos over the Aegean Sea.
Aksoy went on to say Turkish fighter aircraft had merely carried out a routine aircraft identification over the Aegean.
"Dramatizing routine flights so as to sow tension is not to Greece's benefit," he added.
"Instead, these issues should be taken up within the process of confidence-building measures launched between the defense ministries of both countries," he urged.
