Turkish troops have invaded Greece

Turkish troops have invaded Greece and occupied a small patch of land on their contested border.

Around 35 soldiers marched on to a floodplain site on the east bank of the River Evros at Melissokomeio yesterday.

Turkish soldiers and police special forces now have a solid presence within the Greek territory and have camped in the pocket of Apiary at Feres, reports Greek site Army Voice.

At the camp there is now a small Turkish flag flying from a tree. Troops have rejected Greek demands to withdraw.

Yeah & they'd all be deployed in Africa.
So how does this go? The EU throws a few harsh words, Turkey tells them to mind their own, the EU offers the Turks a few billions on the QT, the troops suddenly vanish. And that’s with or without an EU army.

I have to laugh as there were a couple of times me and my mates thought of doing the same thing in an undisclosed location quite a long way from UK.

Re: Turkish troops have invaded Greece

Is it not true that the border legally by treaty is defined by the River Evros... and that the east Bank is Turkish...? So as the river meander changes, so does the border? And everything east bank is Turkish... ?

This situation is characteristic of the border dispues generally between Greece and Turkey, due to treaties madde in past times with ambiguous definitions and conflicting interpretations...

due to this aspect of conflicting definitions and interpretations, neither side has an absolute clear cut un-challengeable 'right' in law...

The solution to this dispute? Perhaps build canalisation ... ? Seems to be a favoured pre-occupation of some in the Turkish government...
