Featured Hurriyet columnist praises Kyriakos Mitsotakis: The Harvard graduate who was adored by Congress

A leading Turkish analyst, Sedat Ergin, in an article in Hurriye newspapert, praises the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for his presence in the USA.

Sedat Ergin analyzes Kyriakos Mitsotakis's speech to Congress and explains how well-written it was. He emphasizes that both Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi expressed their admiration for the "Harvard graduate, Mitsotakis", essentially comparing the Greek Prime Minister with Recep Tayyip Erdogan. It is indicative that commenting on the speech of the Greek Prime Minister, Ergin notes that he gave examples from Greek History and excited the American Senate.

The reference to F-35s
"There is a fundamental truth that this visit shows to everyone. Turkey's relations with the United States are constantly losing ground, among other issues, such as the purchase of S-400s from Russia, and in response the United States has removed Ankara from the F-35 program," the Hurriyet columnist reported.

"On the other hand, when we look at the Greek front, relations with the United States are going through one of the closest periods in their history, inversely proportional to Turkey. The farther Turkey is from the United States, the closer Greece is to this country."

At the same time, in his comment, he refers to the agreement between Greece and the USA for the military base in Alexandroupolis. "As seen in the latest agreement on the bases, Athens is giving a blank check to the US on its military demands. It has three new bases, in addition to the naval and air base on the island of Crete. The fact that Alexandroupolis has become the most important US logistics base for the Balkans and Central Europe is another development that needs to be emphasized."

In closing, he refers to Recep Tayyip Erdogan's statement earlier this week that "there is no Mitsotakis for me anymore" and that he will no longer meet with him: "Behind this is his reaction to Mitsotakis' strong move against her. Turkey, during his tour in Washington ".
