"There is no foreign force on Greek territory," the ministry said in a statement, responding to reports in British and other media.
The chief of the Hellenic National Defense General Staff (GEETHA), Konstantinos Floros, has warned of the risk of an accident in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean due to Turkey's repeated transgressions, during successive teleconferences with NATO's Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe (DSACEUR) Lieutenant General Tim Radford.
Two new incidents of shots being fired by Turkish border guards was reported at the Greece's border in the Evros region late on Thursday.
In the first incident, two boats of the Turkish border police sailing in Evros river at 10.20 p.m. with two passengers each, fired shots in the air and a flair that landed on the Greek side of the border.
