Mitsotakis announces military spending to counter Turkish aggression

Greece will strengthen its armed forces by buying new weapons systems, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced Saturday.

Specifically, Greece will acquire 18 Rafale fighters, a full squadron's strength, to replacing the aging Mirage 2000 planes; 4 new frigates, while refurbishing 4 existing ones; 4 Romeo naval helicopters; antitank weapons for the Army; torpedoes for the Navy and guided missile for its Air Force. It will also add 15,000 professional soldiers to its armed forces over the next five years, Mitsotakis said.

The new weapons procurement program comes amid heightened tensions with Turkey over resources in the eastern Mediterranean.
