    REGION  06 December 2023 - 12:37

    Greek police have banned rallies and marches in Athens on the day of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit due to public safety concerns.

    The corresponding order was issued by the head of the police department of the capital region of Attica, Caliber.Az reports, citing Russian media.

    “By decision of the Chief of Police of Attica, during the official visit to our country of the President of the Republic of Türkiye Recep Tayyip Erdogan, any public meetings in the open air are prohibited on December 7 between 06:00 and 18:00 for reasons of public safety,” the police said in a statement.

    The ban includes the centre of Athens and roads from Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos, as well as bridges and overpasses along the route of the motorcade.

    Serious security measures will be taken during Erdogan's visit, ERT television reported.

    More than 3,500 police officers will be involved in maintaining order, and traffic on the roads will be limited for the passage of the Turkish President's motorcade. Increased security measures will also be taken at Athens International Airport. Helicopters and drones will monitor the situation from the air.

    The anti-terrorism service will be on alert, snipers will be stationed on large buildings in Athens, and security will be stepped up at Turkish facilities such as the Turkish Embassy, television reported.
