Greece filed a complaint over a NATO message on the occasion of a Turkish holiday

Greece issued a stern démarche to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg after NATO’s Land Command (LANDCOM), headquartered in Izmir, tweeted a message marking Turkey’s victory over Greece in the Greco-Turkish War of 1922, reports say the Greek “Kathimerini” and BTA.

“Today marks the 100th anniversary of Turkey’s independence. We join our Turkish NATO and non-Alliance allies in celebrating their victory and Turkish Armed Forces Day,” LANDCOM tweeted.

According to a statement from the Greek Foreign Ministry on Wednesday, the post in question “besides being tasteless, it is also unacceptable”.

Greece’s permanent representative to the alliance has filed a complaint condemning the “unacceptable” step, Greece’s foreign ministry said in a statement released today. The Greek army will submit a similar complaint to the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers in Europe (SHAPE), the ministry said.

“At the same time, Greek NATO military authorities will make a similar statement to the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), to which LANDCOM is responsible,” the statement added.
