Turkey Tells Greece to Pull Troops From Island at Heart of Rift

Turkey warned Greece its soldiers on a tiny island violate a 1947 peace treaty, stoking tension between the two NATO members over energy resources in the Mediterranean.

With Turkish media featuring images of Greek soldiers arriving on the island, the Foreign Ministry in Ankara said Sunday “we will not allow such a provocation just across our shores.” In contrast, a person familiar with the Greek government’s stance said soldiers are already stationed on the island and the event was a routine troop rotation.
