The Foreign Ministry has rejected as hypocritical statements by European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker regarding two detained Greek soldiers in Turkey.
With these remarks ... The EU authorities lose their credibility and reliability day by day, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hami Aksoy said in a written statement on April 26
During a recent visit to Greece, Juncker said Turkey must release the Greek soldiers, detained after inadvertently crossing the border last month.
We reject this statement, which is far from being serious and lacks legal basis. Greek soldiers who violate Turkish law do not have any privileges before the independent judiciary, Aksoy stated in response.
We condemn this two-faced mentality [of the EU], which does not hesitate to make remarks about the state of law when it comes to its interests, making statements that interfere with the ongoing judicial process, he added.
EU FURY: ‘Appalling’ Juncker snubs millions as he celebrates Karl Marx’s 200th anniversary
I can’t resist...
Oveur: You ever been in a cockpit before?
Joey: No, sir, I’ve never been up in a plane before.
Oveur: You ever seen a grown man naked? Do you like movies about gladiators?
Oveur: Joey, have you ever been in a Turkish Prison?
So you’re saying that Turkey is justified in capturing Greek soldiers because the EU and Juncker have a Karl Marx man crush?
Turkey is a sovereign country and you must obey Turkish law.
Marxist Juncker is wrong.
A thread on Turkey would not be good with out an “Airplane!” reference.
Me, too. And I am very glad the EU did not let Turkey into the “union.”
