The Turkish media once again underlined the immediate solidarity expressed by Greece over the killer earthquake, which struck Turkey on Sunday.
They highlighted the activities of Greek Ambassador to Ankara Ioannis Korantis, who is coordinating the aid Greece can provide immediately. Greece and Turkey had scrambled to assist each other when killer earthquakes had struck both countries in 1999.
Turkish rescue groups from the AKUT rescue service are already heading to the earthquake-stricken area from Istanbul. The tremor is not linked to the Anatolian fault, which had caused the earthquakes in 1999.
