Turkey’s enemies have been seeing Greece as a “safe haven” and the Greek attitude regarding individuals Ankara sees as supporters of a 2016 failed coup damages ties, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Friday.

Speaking to reporters after Friday prayers, Yildirim said it was unacceptable for people who took part in the abortive putsch to be protected by Greece, as ties between Ankara and Athens, neighbours and NATO allies, have soured in recent months.

Earlier on Friday, Turkey’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement accusing Athens of “protecting the coup plotters.”
