Turkey has a plan for the invasion of Greece, secret documents reveal

Abdullah Bozkurt

Turkey has a plan for the invasion of Greece codenamed after an 11th century Turkish military commander who ruled an independent state during the Byzantine era, secret documents have revealed.

According to a Power Point presentation prepared by the General Staff for an internal planning review, Turkey drew up a plan for a secret military operation named “TSK Çakabey Harekât Planlama Direktifi” (TSK [Turkish Armed Forces] Çakabey Operation Planning Directive). The document has a date of June 13, 2014, suggesting that it was most likely updated and finalized on that date after a review of an earlier version and is presumably still active.

Baku Network Expert Council head: European Parliament taught "Karabakh lesson" to Armenia

BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 16


Armenia has recently been defeated in all spheres in the field of diplomacy regarding the settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

After Germany announced the decision to close the office of the so-called “Nagorno-Karabakh Republic” (NKR) in Berlin, another decision was adopted in the European Parliament. In accordance with this decision, the European countries called on Armenia to acknowledge the internationally recognized borders of Azerbaijan.

The European Parliament’s statement was made in response to Yerevan’s intention to begin construction of a new highway from Armenia’s Kapan city to the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region through Gubadli and Jabrayil districts of Azerbaijan.

Only Im Kayl (My Step) MPs will participate in today’s parliamentary vote on stripping Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK) leader Gagik Tsarukyan of his immunity, thus paving the way for his arrest on a number of charges including illegal business activity and vote buying.

Fifth-placed Roma, suffering from the inconsistency which has dogged them over the last few seasons, had lost their last three league games while Lecce had won theirs, but they made surprisingly light work of the visitors.

Mkhitaryan set up the first goal in the 13th minute when he laid the ball off for Cengiz Under to burst through the Rome defense and comfortably beat Mauro Vigorito.
