Greek Gov't on armaments

ANA-MPA/Government spokesman Giorgos Petalotis stated on Wednesday that "it would be advisable not to confuse the comments made by (Alternate Greek DM Panos) Beglitis with those made by (Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip) Erdogan."

Petalotis spoke in response to a question by a reporter as regards an earlier statement by the Greek minister that "fortunes were made illegally from armaments transactions" and another statement by Erdogan, according to which "armaments were at the core of the Greek economic crisis."

The spokesman stated that Beglitis voiced the government's determination to put an end to questionable practices as regards armaments, adding that objectivity and transparency in armaments transactions is guaranteed.
