Turkey blasts Greek court for granting asylum right to soldiers linked to coup attempt
“This is the most shameful decision that can ever be given for a country,” EU Minister Ömer Çelik said via his Twitter account late on May 23.
“The legal system of the EU-member Greece has decided to protect terrorists who had initiated for a coup attempt in a bid to destroy democracy in Turkey. This mentality has stood with terrorists against Turkey,” Çelik added.
In a written statement, the Turkish Foreign Ministry also condemned the Greek court’s decision.
