The Greek and Turkish positions lead possibly to a Greek-Turkish war, Retired Lieutenant General Andreas Pentaras said in an interview with Cypriot SIGMA TV station.
According to him, that is why an effort has been launched by the EU for some kind of diplomatic easing of the situation, The Greek City Times reported.
He added that Turkey has been using this strategy since the 1950s, and it has evolved over time depending on geopolitical development.
In this volatile situation, we are facing the possibility of a hot episode, Retired Lieutenant General said.
Pentaras noted that a Greek-Turkish conflict will spread to Cyprus as it is the weak link for Turkey and it will try to achieve a decisive result because in Greece it will lose.
