Macron steps up as Merkel cowers. French jets buzz Turkish ships in East Med (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 632.

Via Ekathimerini (https://www.ekathimerini.com/255905/article/ekathimerini/news/during-eu-teleconference-greece-and-germany-disagree-on-turkey-stance)…

During an EU teleconference of the European Union Foreign Affairs Council (FAC) on Friday, Greece and Germany disagreed on the content of the statement officials had planned to issue after the talks, according to diplomatic sources.

The Greek side insisted on a harder line against Ankara that would have demanded an immediate end to Turkey’s exploratory activities in the Eastern Mediterranean this week and that would have welcomed last week’s deal between Greece and Egypt demarcating the two countries’ exclusive economic zones.

However German officials disagreed, particularly over a proposed reference to the Greek-Egyptian deal. Berlin was irked with the timing of the Greek-Egyptian maritime accord, a day before the scheduled announcement of exploratory talks between Athens and Ankara that had been mediated by Germany.

As a result, Greece too refused to approve a proposed EU statement on the Belarus election results, meaning there was no joint statement at the end of the teleconference.

And Turkey then ran whining to the EU asking that it address those who take “unilateral and provocative steps in the eastern Mediterranean”!

Macron is an evil opportunist, not to be trusted. Straw in the wind! Today here, tomorrow there!
