Dear Mr. Baquet,
At the end of February Turkey’s President Erdogan announced that Turkey would open its borders and allow migrants to attempt to pass through to Greece and the rest of the EU. Since then, Turkey has actively transported tens of thousands of migrants, mostly hardcore jihadists, to the border in an effort to overwhelm Greece. This does not include the thousands of members of the Turkish military disguised as migrants trying to cross over.
To put it simply, this is a blatant attempt to destabilize a country and blackmail Europe and the root of the current crisis. The European leaders witnessed this first hand, by visiting the site!
In the face of Turkey’s aggressive and destabilizing actions, Greece has stopped more than 62,000 people from illegally crossing its border. Many European countries have come to the assistance of Greece with materials, weapons and personnel. Official arrest numbers indicate that the majority of people attempting to enter are from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria and others, with less than 3% arriving from Syria. The authors of this “investigative” piece fail to include this information, or the experiences of the many people that were tragically put on buses and manipulated and forced by Turkish authorities. Instead, the story that emerges could pass as a Turkish hit- piece.
As Ankara throws its weight into undermining Greece’s image, The New York Times must not fall into Turkey’s propaganda trap. Please report on this issue in a balanced and fair way...Your readers trust you and they deserve it!! Thank you,
Stelios Kirimlis President
