De Regering van Griekenland heeft op 29 juni 1993 naar aanleiding van het door Turkije bij de nederlegging van de akte van bekrachtiging gemaakte voorbehoud het volgende bezwaar gemaakt: «Objection du Gouvernement de Hellénique à la réserve formulée par le Gouvernement de la Turquie au Traité sur les forces armées conventionelles en Europe.

Le Gouvernement Hellénique formule objection à l'égard de la réserve émise par la Turquie au Traité sur les forces armeés conventionelles en Europe dans la mesure où cette réserve s'écarte de la déclaration faite par la Grèce au même Traité, tant en ce qui concerne les instruments et actes internationaux qui y sont cités, qu'en ce qui concerne le fond de la question.».
