Greece says Turkey lacks credibility after new sail to disputed waters
ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece accused rival Turkey of not being credible on Monday by sending a survey ship into controversial waters in the eastern Mediterranean and staging the partial opening of an abandoned city in ethnically divided Cyprus.
On the previous Monday, Turkey issued a maritime notice that it intended to send the survey vessel Oruc Reis to the region, which was heavily criticized by Greece.
Last month, Ankara withdrew the ship from disputed waters in the eastern Mediterranean to "enable diplomacy" before an EU summit in which Cyprus pushed for sanctions and Turkey. Greece welcomed this step.
"Turkey has shown that it lacks credibility. Anyone who believed that Turkey meant everything it said before the European summit from October 1st to 2nd has now been corrected," said government spokesman Stelios Petsas.
