 Again the friction? Greek gunboats collided with Turkey cargo ship Aegean Sea


The Greek Navy said that at 4 a.m. local time, the Greek gunboat the Marto was on duty in the waters near Lesvos. A ship flying the flag of Turkey close and touched gunboats and then accelerated to Turkey coast. The ships involved in Turkey did not respond to radio contact with Greek gunboats. The Greek Navy said there were no casualties in the collision and the damage to the Marmaris was not serious. Turkey transport ministry later confirmed that a Turkey cargo ship collided with the Greek warship. We got the news that the ships were not in danger, no casualties, no environmental pollution. There have been many tensions between Greece and Turkey so far. During last Decembers visit to Greece by President Recep Tayyi Erdogan of Turkey, the two countries agreed to strengthen consultations to increase mutual trust. But the relationship between the two countries was again unpleasant in the near future. Two Greek soldiers crossed the border into Turkey in March 1st. They were detained by the mainland and subsequently charged with trying to engage in espionage. The Greek government said the next day that two soldiers had been in Turkey due to bad weather, and Xi was communicating with the Turkish side, hoping that the soldiers would return to China as soon as possible. El said last month that if the Greek government wanted to release two Greek soldiers, the government had to extradite 8 Turkey soldiers who participated in the attempted coup in Turkey in 2016. The proposal was rejected by the Greek government. The Greek Supreme Court rejected Turkeys request for the extradition of 8 soldiers last year. The Greek side believes that if those soldiers return to China, they will face unfair judicial decisions.
