Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Wednesday his European partners couldn't always appreciate the challenges of living with an 'aggressive' neighbor such as Turkey, remarks reflecting the strained ties between the two NATO partners.Hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants crossed from Turkey into Greece and further into the European Union at the height of the migration crisis in 2015 . It coincided with Greece negotiating its third financial bailout from international creditors to stave off bankruptcy.Tsipras, who came to power in early 2015, said he took the helm at a very difficult time for Greece which didn't only have to grapple with its worst debt crisis and the refugee crisis, but also an "aggressive neighbor, sometimes unpredictable with an aggressive military activity in the Aegean," Tsipras said.
