    Greek Minister of Defense of Greece: Su-24 did not violate the Turkish border

    The Minister of Defense of Greece, Panos Kammenos said on TV that the Russian bomber Su-24 did not violate Turkish airspace, reports RIA "Novosti".

    According to the Minister, if the Russian aircraft crossed the Turkish border, Ankara "would ask to activate article 5 of the NATO Charter as a member state of the Alliance under attack".

    "If Russia violated Turkish airspace, we would have taken the Turkish side. Greece is a member of NATO and the EU. We would not take the side of Russia in case of a violation" — said Kammenos.

    The Minister noted that Greece condemns the violation of its airspace by Turkish fighters.
