Speaking to reporters, the military leader was asked to explain how Greece would react if Turkey commenced drilling inside the Greek continental shelf. “If such things happen, Greece will exercise its sovereign rights, there is a set of escalating measures.” General Floros added:

“If we are to reach the point of strictly military action, this is also a possibility, no one has ruled it out. There is no one point-locale of crisis, it will spread immediately, it is not possible for something to happen in Kastellorizo ​​and not to spread everywhere.”
