原文:

In another sign of the volatility, Hellenic National Defence General Staff (HNDS) said Turkish fighter planes had on Friday entered the Athens Flight Information Region (FIR), the area where Greek authorities are responsible for air traffic. The Turkish aerial intrusion was a 'provocative and anti-ally' stance, and Greek fighters chased away the Turkish planes.

The incursion happened while four Greek F-16 fighter aircraft were escorting a US strategic B-52 bomber plane as part of the 'Allied Sky' mission, in which six US bombers are flying over all 30 NATO nations in Europe and North America in a single day to display the Alliance's solidarity.

The crisis has split members of the NATO alliance and in a phone call with Turkish President, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stressed the need for 'dialogue and de-escalation.'

中譯:

希臘國防參謀本部表示,土耳其戰鬥機上週五進入雅典飛行情報區,即希臘當局權管的空中交通區域,形成另一個動盪不安跡象。土耳其戰機空中入侵的作為,是一種挑釁、反盟國的立場,而希臘戰機已將之驅離。

入侵事件發生時,4架希臘F-16戰機正伴護1架美軍B-52戰略轟炸機執行「聯盟天空」行動,該任務是由6架美軍轟炸機在1日內,飛越歐洲和北美共計30個北約盟國,以展現盟邦的團結一致。

這場危機已造成北約聯盟成員關係的裂痕,北約秘書長史托騰柏格於致電土耳其總統時強調,有必要進行對話、降低緊張情勢。
