The Greek Foreign Ministry issued threatening statements.
According to UNN, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, speaking on the Open TV channel, said that Greece will defend its sovereign rights by all means, including the military, if Turkey sends the research vessel Oruc Reis to the Greek Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
“We do not threaten anyone, we do not make loud statements, and we do not have such a hysterical reaction, which is typical for other countries in the region. We are simply saying that as a sovereign country we are constitutionally obligated to defend ourselves, and we will do this by whatever means our constitution and our capabilities provide. And we say this to everyone calmly, so that it is known from the very beginning, so that there is no misunderstanding, – stressed the Foreign Minister, – I think that no one in the European Union, none of our partners and friends expects something else from the Greek government ”
Referring to the agreement signed on Thursday in Cairo between Greece and Egypt on the demarcation of sea borders and the establishment of an exclusive economic zone, Dendias said that the EU countries had already been informed about the document.

“Immediately after my return (from Cairo), we sent the text of this agreement and its maps to all the countries with which we are members of the European Union, and, of course, Germany, presiding over it,” the minister said.
