We have not closed the chapter yet on the Ukraine-Russia war, and SOFREP has just reported the skirmish between Armenia and Azerbaijan. But, we are here again to bring you a warning that the third war of 2022 could be happening soon.

Last week, Greece’s government wrote an official letter to the EU, the UN, and NATO to help them condemn Turkey and its president Recep Tayyip Erdogan for its threats to the country. In the letters, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias said Turkey’s behavior should be censored by these three bodies.

“By not doing so in time or by underestimating the seriousness of the matter, we risk witnessing again a situation similar to that currently unfolding in some other part of our continent,” Dendias wrote, referring to the Ukraine-Russia war.

“This is something none of us would really wish to see.”

Dendias implied that Greece and Turkey are currently experiencing the lowest point when it comes to their relations as they tackle historical and contemporary disputes (including that of the Aegean Sea boundaries and immigration).

Last Tuesday, Turkey announced a subtle threat directed at Greece, with Erdogan saying things could “come all of a sudden one night.” However, when asked if the Turkish president was referring to a military action, he responded with an affirmative.

“What I’m talking about is not a dream. If what I said was that we could come one night all of a sudden [it means] that, when the time comes, we can come suddenly one night.”

Dendias quickly called out Erdogan in his remarks, saying these are “outrageous comments” that should not be taken lightly. Greece will be treating this as a warning that Turkey could “invade” Greek islands soon.
