A highly unusual online exchange took place on Twitter between the prime ministers of Greece and Turkey before the former deleted his tweets - but only from the English version of his account.
We are in the same neighborhood and we have to talk honestly so we can reach solutions #EUTurkey— Alexis Tsipras (@tsipras_eu) November 29, 2015
“What is happening in the Aegean is outrageous and unbelievable #EUTurkey” Tsipras continued. “We’re spending billions on weapons. You - to violate our airspace, we - to intercept you #EUTurkey” Tsipras said in a third tweet, referring to intrusions of Turkish planes into Greek airspace, which Turkey contests, and Greek and Turkish pilots frequently buzzing each other.
