Greece’s National Defense General Staff and the Hellenic Navy have been closely monitoring the presence of the Turkish research vessel Cesme off Andros following a spike in tensions with Turkey.

The Cesme appeared in the area on Thursday afternoon and although it was in international waters, Greek authorities were on standby following a series of provocative statements and actions by Turkey.

Turkish fighter jets violated Greek air space on Friday, according to Greek officials who said two Turkish F-16s got involved in a mock dogfight with Greek jets.
