The Greek government is taking steps to populate a number of small islets in the eastern Aegean in a bid to fend off territorial claims by Ankara in the region, Kathimerini understands.

The plan, which is laid out in a document presented in Parliament by deputy Minister of Shipping and Island Policy Nektarios Santorinios, foresees several measures and small-scale projects on 28 islets and rocky formations, including the construction of beacons and military outposts.
