“Friends come both night and day,” Greek cartoonist and comic artist Soloup said in his latest cartoon published on Topontiki Magazine on Thursday, depicting the post-earthquake solidarity between Greece and Turkey.

With these words he wrote on the cartoon, the artist also referred to Turkish President Erdogan’s earlier remarks, threatening Greece with war over the status of Greek islands as saying "we may come suddenly one night".
Over 14,000 people were killed so far in two major earthquakes that struck ten provinces in Southeastern Turkey on Monday. Following the quakes with magnitudes of 7.7 and 7.6 respectively, countries around the world including Greece have sent search and rescue teams to help the quake-hit country.
A special rescue team from the Greek Special Disaster Response Unit (EMAK), consisting of 21 firefighters, two doctors, three emergency medical personnel and two search and rescue dogs was transferred to Turkey.
