    (ANSAmed) - ISTANBUL, 01 LUG - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was quoted by Anadolu news agency as saying Friday that "we don't intend to declare war against Greece". However, he added "Greece doesn't keep its promises", speaking with journalists after Friday prayers at a mosque in Istanbul, accusing Athens of violating Turkish airspace 147 times.
